|The Prince Rupert BC Liquor Store and private
stores in the City could be fairly busy tonight and
Thursday prior to a new Public Health Order
on the sale of alcohol for New Years Eve
A new public health order issued this afternoon by British Columbia's Public Health Officer Doctor Bonnie Henry, will see the suspension of the sale of alcohol in the province tomorrow night at 8PM.
The decisions to act one as Provincial health Authorities and the BC government look to reduce the potential for the spread of COVID-19 on one of the most popular nights of the year.
The New Years Eve Prohibition Order is directed towards anyone who may have opportunity to sell or purchase liquor on the final night of the year:
For the establishments which sell liquor the notice in effect specifies the following:You must not sell liquor between 8:00 pm on December 31, 2020 and 9:00 am on January 1, 2021.
