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.
