TOLEDO, Ohio (WTVG) - One day after being proposed by Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine, the Ohio Liquor Control Commission approved a ban on liquor sales at bars and restaurants after 10 p.m. in the state.

DeWine proposed stopping alcohol sales after 10 p.m. in an effort to limit the spread of the coronavirus at bars throughout the state.

“This rule would prevent the sale of alcohol at all liquor-permitted establishments beginning at 10 p.m. each night. Consumption of alcohol must end by 11:00 p.m.,” DeWine said.

Along with that request, DeWine wants limits on to-go drinks increased from 2 to 3.

The Liquor Control Commission will hold their emergency meeting tomorrow at 9 a.m. If the emergency statewide administrative rule is approved, DeWine said he would sign an Executive Order that would make it effective Friday night.
