Welcome to IWETHEY!

New Briefly, though.
Here in Ohio, liquor stores are not considered essential and are shuttered indefinitely. Can still get beer and wine at a grocery store.

New That was one thing I found odd in the US.
When I visited Austin a number of months ago it felt odd that the Whole Foods near my hotel had a couple of aisles of wine and beer basically in the middle of the supermarket. That's doesn't happen in Australia. I'm not sure of the exact legislation but the effect is that all liquor is in a separate store.

New It's state-by-state in the U.S.

New Yes - in fact . . .
. . one of my two most visited markets, Super King, remodeled, moving their liquor section into a confined sub-store with only one narrow, carefully guarded entrance, to reduce "shrinkage". Items selected are paid for in that sub-store and tagged as "Approved".

This sub-store is the size of many liquor stores, and has an incredible number of selections that are over US $100 per bottle. I buy the Armenian brandy I use as throat sterilizer there.

My other most visited market also has a vast liquor section with plenty of expensive bottles. Theirs is all in a wall long, glazed cabinet under lock and key.
New In Florida, even some Walmarts do that.

"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that "my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge."

-- Isaac Asimov
New in louisiana as well. Also there they have drive thru daquiri shops

New VT: smarter/quicker than even Presidents*, nice.
New Re: Briefly, though.
Here in the UK, off-licences have been designated as essential.

Because they are.

You can't say to people "ha! months of no going out or socialising or none of that shit for YUO!" and then also say "also, no drinking". At least, you can't say that to British people, without consequences.
New Oh, to be an Englishman.
