Licensed liquor establishments throughout the Commonwealth should expect more visits from Pennsylvania State Police Liquor Control Enforcement Officers over the weekend.

Officers are checking to make sure customers and employees are abiding by social distancing, masking, and other health and safety requirements. From July 1 to July 5, officers conducted compliance checks at 2,189 licensed-liquor establishments and issued 21 warnings for failing to follow COVID-19 requirements.

“We have a tremendous working relationship with licensees and the overwhelming majority of our interactions throughout the pandemic have been positive,” said Major Jeffrey Fisher, director of the Pennsylvania State Police Bureau of Liquor Control Enforcement. “Our role is to ensure business owners are taking the necessary steps to keep their customers, employees, and the larger community safe.”

Officers show up at establishments to conduct compliance checks unannounced. While the checks could occur anywhere, the officers focus on areas that are experiencing higher coronavirus transmission rates.

Upon arrival, officer are making sure all businesses and employees in the restaurant and retail food-service industry are:

Requiring all customers to wear masks while entering, exiting, or otherwise traveling throughout the restaurant or retail food-service business (face masks may be removed while seated). Employees are required to wear masks at all times; Providing at least six feet between parties at tables or physical barriers between customers where booths are arranged back to back; Ensuring maximum occupancy limits for indoor and outdoor areas are posted and enforced.

Citations will be administered to violators by the Pennsylvania State Police Bureau of Liquor Control Enforcement. Repeat offenders’ liquor licenses are at risk if they continue to ignore the rules.

More information is available on the enforcement page of the state police COVID-19 portal. Statistics are updated weekly.

Complaints regarding licensees not complying with COVID-19 mitigation mandates may be directed to the BLCE at 1-800-932-0602 or reported through the BLCE’s online complaint form.

Funny how these boys don’t issue citations to rioters and
punk ass bitches killing White people.

I guess it’s all about priorities.

Every person serving in a regulatory capacity right now
should be regulating who is on the street and what they
are up to.

This bar hopping routine is serious -’d up.

“checking to make sure customers and employees are abiding by social distancing, masking, and other health and safety requirements”

None of these ‘requirements’ are laws passed by the legislature. They were an order signed by the unelected cross-dressing freak in Harrisburg.

This is nothing but harassment. Go tell the freak Levine to enforce the order.

DEFUND THE PA STATE POLICE NOW!

‘Don’t they have Antifa to arrest?’

sure they do; which is exactly why they’re harassing private citizens instead...

I mean, what would you rather do, get paid for powder puff assignments, or actually have to get down and dirty for the money...?

The headline is a little misleading. The Bureau of Liquor Control and Enforcement (BLCE) has been under the the auspices of the Pennsylvania State Police for about two decades.

It used to be its own enforcement entity.

BLCE agents can't enforce traffic or do criminal investigations.

So, yeah, technically, it is State Police doing the compliance checks but there will still be plenty of Troopers working radar.

Gotta be like Slovenia - I think it was —and just rebel. There was a mask order issued there and they had to rescind it the next day because there was bloodshed in the streets that night.

‘the Pennsylvania State Police’

the same bunch that couldn’t be bothered to investigate Jerry Sandusky, when a completely powerless kid dared to contact them with credible evidence...

and what a faction of the PSU football crowd did to this kid’s reputation is even worse...

Terrorists are burning down our country, and cops are baby-sitting mask offenders.

‘Doesn’t PA have weird ass alcohol laws anyway?’

yes, because the governor Gifford Pinchot, who never missed an opportunity to persecute someone who dared to imbibe, was so bitter at the repeal of prohibition that he determined to make it as difficult as possible for a guy to get a drink in the commonwealth...

not all that long ago, if you wanted to get a bottle of red table wine, you had to go up to a counter and ask two old government hacks to go in the back to get it for you; after proving your age of course...
