On Monday, August 3, Governor Brian Kemp signed House Bill 879, allowing stores and some restaurants to deliver beer, booze and wine to Georgia homes.
This bill comes after many Georgians are avoiding stores and having groceries and other goods delivered to their homes during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Regulations for the home deliveries will have to be drawn up by the Department of Revenue before stores can use the law which could take a few months.
Under the new law, ID checks will be required upon delivery and alcoholic beverages will not be left unattended outside of homes. Additionally, the law allows local municipalities to opt out of allowing the deliveries.
