(opens in new window)

The gist: Louisiana relaxed regulations to allow the state’s restaurants to offer carryout sales of beer and wine. The move is aimed to help cushion COVID-19’s economic blow to restaurants, amid enforced closure of dining rooms statewide.

  • Packaged wine and beer can be sold
  • Liquor and draft beer are not included in the revised rules
  • Customers must buy food to buy alcohol
  • Alcohol must be in factory-sealed containers
