Ohio has banned liquor sales to out of state residents in six counties that are either on or close to the PA border.
Liquor sales in Ashtabula, Trumbull, Mahoning, Columbiana, Jefferson and Belmont counties will all be limited to Ohio residents ONLY under the new order that was issued on Monday.
The order from the Ohio Dept. of Health was designed to prevent the further spread of #COVID19.
Ohio Governor Mike DeWine said, "This is necessary because of repeated instances of persons from Pennsylvania coming into these counties for the sole or main purpose of purchasing liquor. Any other time, we'd love to have visitors from PA, but right now this creates an unacceptable public health issue."
