Vancouver: Restaurants to stop offering dine in services at midnight

BY , Mar 20, 2020 10:41 PM - REPORT AN ERROR

Liquor stores in British Columbia are adjusting their hours but will remain open as Vancouver ordered restaurants to stop offering dine in services at midnight.

The provincial government says hours are changing at BC Liquor Stores so that staff can do additional cleaning to minimize the risk to employees and customers from COVID-19.

When necessary, the number of customers allowed in stores will also be limited to maintain self-distancing.

The government says there are no shortages of beer, wine or spirits but the stores have not been able to keep shelves stocked because of an increase in sales.

In Vancouver, Mayor Kennedy Stewart says the order for restaurants to stop offering dine-in service will be enforced and those that do not comply will get a notice that could escalate to prosecution for non-compliance.

The provincial government ordered all bars and nightclubs to close earlier this week.
