PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – During their coronavirus compliance review, state police issued a violation notification and six warnings to liquor establishments approved in the Pittsburgh area.
Alcohol control police officers visited 766 licensed facilities across the state Monday through Thursday to ensure coronavirus instructions were followed. They issued 10 reports of violations and 26 warnings.
The Pittsburgh State Police Bureau of Liquor Control Enforcement issued a violation notice and six warnings December 7-10 after visiting 229 companies.
Bars and restaurants that have reported a violation are not named because they are being investigated. Each Bureau of Liquor Control Enforcement office publishes details of citations later this month.
Police say these checks could take place anywhere in the state but are focused on areas with higher COVID-19 transmission rates.
A notification of a violation is given before an administrative quote, according to the police, and is intended to inform the institutions which violations have been found. State Police say violations may face an administrative quote, and continued violations jeopardize a company’s alcohol licensing.
On Thursday, Governor Tom Wolf imposed new temporary restrictions on coronavirus, including closing indoor dining from Saturday through January 4.
If you have a complaint about a licensed facility that is not fulfilling coronavirus mandates, you can call 1-800-932-0602 or file a complaint online.
