State Police are warning services within the Pittsburgh space that aren’t following coronavirus directions – three Alerts – CBS Pittsburgh

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – Three Pittsburgh licensed liquor establishments have been warned after a police visit to ensure they are following COVID-19 instructions such as a temporary ban on indoor dining.

From Thursday, December 24 through Sunday, December 27, State Police officers visited 454 facilities and issued 16 reports of violations and 21 warnings.

The unannounced compliance reviews ensure companies are tracking efforts to mitigate the coronavirus such as wearing masks and the recent three-week break from eating indoors. Several restaurants have decided not to close despite the governor’s order.

While some owners are filing legal objections to restrictions, a federal judge in Pennsylvania recently upheld the Wolf government’s three-week indoor dining ban.

The Pittsburgh Law Enforcement Office police visited 91 companies and issued three warnings and one notice of violations.


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.

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 come up against an administrative quote, and persistent violations put a company’s alcohol licensing at risk.

If you would like to complain about a licensed facility that is not in compliance with the coronavirus mandates, you can call 1-800-932-0602 or file a complaint online.
