Pennsylvania State Police said seven violation notices and 26 warnings were issued as a result of COVID-19 compliance checks at licensed liquor establishments over the past three days.

Three of those violations were in the Pittsburgh area, along with four warnings, according to statistics released by state police. (Scroll down to see the numbers)

"Because the investigation is ongoing, names of establishments issued a notice of violation will not be released at this time," state police said.

Compliance checks are unannounced and can occur anywhere in Pennsylvania, but the focus is on areas with higher coronavirus transmission rates, state police said.

Liquor Control Enforcement officers visited 315 businesses to check for social distancing, masking, and other health and safety requirements of the liquor code.

Below are the reported numbers of compliance checks, warnings and violation notices issued by the Bureau of Liquor Control Enforcement from Oct. 13-15.

  • Philadelphia: 39 compliance checks, 5 warnings, 1 violation.
  • Wilkes-Barre: 29 checks, 4 warnings, no violations.
  • Harrisburg: 28 checks, 2 warnings, no violations.
  • Pittsburgh: 138 checks, 4 warnings, 3 violations.
  • Altoona: 22 checks, 1 warning, no violations.
  • Williamsport: 13 checks, 2 warnings, no violations.
  • Punxsutawney: 9 checks, 4 warnings, 3 violations.
  • Erie: 18 checks, 1 warning, no violations.
  • Allentown: 19 checks, 3 warnings, no violations
 

State police said all businesses and employees in the restaurant and retail food service industry that are authorized to conduct in-person activities must:

  • Require customers to wear masks while entering, exiting or otherwise traveling throughout the business. (Masks may be removed while seated.)
  • Require employees to wear masks at all times.
  • Provide at least 6 feet between parties at tables or physical barriers between customers where booths are arranged back to back.
  • Ensure maximum occupancy limits for indoor and outdoor areas are posted and enforced.

Police said violators may face administrative citation by the LCE, and continued violations put the establishment's liquor license at risk.

A complaint about a business not complying with COVID-19 mitigation mandates may be reported via the state's online complaint form or by calling 800-932-0602.

Oh heavens, how do they expect restaurant workers to police the guests.  It's so simple to comply, but nit wits who can't even try to comply in the minute it takes to walk to a table, walk through yelling at the top of their lungs like, "Hey look at me!".  I do, and people I've known for many years have lost some of my esteem.

Hmm I've never seen/heard anyone yell at the top of their lungs in a restaurant who aren't wearing masks. Didn't know we were to do that 🤔 I will add that to my list of things to do like window licking.

My 17 year old niece was called a "communist c-word" when she asked a customer to put his mask on when he entered the restaurant she was working in.  Thankfully,  her manager was able to quickly have the man removed from the restaurant.

Just because you don't see it happening doesn't mean it isn't happening.   There are idiots on both sides of the mask debacle.

I am aware that people are rude to workers telling them to wear a mask. That was not what i was referring to.

If it was not for the stupid rules none of this would be happening.

Wear your mask while moving from outside to inside. Sit down among the enclosed virus and take your mask off.

Straight from a stupid persons brain.

Well, well, well Adolf Wolf and his SS Gestapo's unconstitutional and illegal edicts and mandates went down in flames again. This just blew the door wide open for restaurants and small businesses.

 

Palmyra, Pa. Taste of Sicily owner WINS case setting precedent in the legal system that WE ARE DONE with masks and social distancing. Back story: this Italian restaurant was fined in the summer $10,000 for not wearing masks and not forcing their customers to wear a mask. OPEN YOUR BUSINESS 100%. No more restrictions. Healthy cannot be restricted or masked. The vulnerable need to take safeguards. Everyone stay home when sick and wash your hands. #FREEDOM 🇺🇸 #gobacktowork #saveourbusinesses

With the LCB trying to enforce Adolf Wolf's unconstitutional and illegal edicts and mandates it looks like the PA Court system is about to get extremely busy and I'll bet the phones are ringing off the hook too at civil law firms to file civil action against Wolf's illegal shut downs.

barHARRISBURG, Pa. – Pennsylvania State Police Liquor Control Enforcement Officers visited 288 licensed liquor establishments from Friday, October 30 through Sunday, November 1 to ensure businesses are abiding by COVID-19 mitigation requirements that include social distancing, masking, and other health and safety requirements of the liquor code.

Liquor Control Enforcement Officers issued 20 notices of violation and 43 warnings for failing to follow COVID-19 requirements. As mandated by the liquor code, a notice of violation precedes the issuance of an administrative citation, which is civil in nature, and is intended to provide licensed liquor establishments notification of the nature of violation(s) discovered. The investigation remains open during this period, pending review by the Pennsylvania State Police Bureau of Liquor Control Enforcement (BLCE). Because the investigation is ongoing, names of establishments issued a notice of violation will not be released at this time. Each BLCE district office posts a monthly public information release that includes details on citations issued by that office.

Compliance checks are unannounced and can occur anywhere in the commonwealth, although the focus is on areas experiencing higher coronavirus transmission rates. Among other requirements, all businesses and employees in the restaurant and retail food service industry authorized to conduct in-person activities are mandated to:

Violators may face administrative citation by the Pennsylvania State Police Bureau of Liquor Control Enforcement. Continued violations put an establishment’s liquor license at risk, either through the citation process or upon application for renewal. More information is available on the enforcement page of the state police COVID-19 portal.

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.

  • Require 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). Further, employees are required to wear masks at all times.
  • Provide at least six feet between parties at tables or physical barriers between customers where booths are arranged back to back.
  • Ensure maximum occupancy limits for indoor and outdoor areas are posted and enforced.

Nope.  Neither do the "face shields" that don't filter anything.  Or the people glaring at someone who isn't wearing a mask, while they aren't wearing their own mask properly. 

Common sense is dead.  Logic and the ability to think critically are being replaced with mindless drones that do what they are told.
