RICHMOND, Va. -- The Virginia ABC has changed its rules to let restaurants deliver alcohol or sell it curbside without having a special permit to do so.

This is in response to restaurants closing their dining rooms in an effort to slow the spread of COVID-19.

"In order for licensed businesses to use this feature, both curbside pickup and delivery must be facilitated by a customer’s electronic order either online, over the phone or through an app," an ABC spokesperson said. "Additionally, licensees with off-premise privileges, including breweries, farm wineries and wineries may sell products for curbside pickup in a designated area or deliveries to customers’ homes without obtaining an additional delivery permit."
