PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - Pennsylvania State Police Liquor Control Enforcement sent officers to check on 1,243 liquor establishments on Monday, August 31 and Tuesday, September 1.
The statewide visits are meant to check on businesses and whether or not they’re following proper COVID-19 protocol.
With that, five violations and 12 warnings were handed down.
Four of those violations were given to Pittsburgh-centric establishments.
And Pittsburgh also got three of the warnings.
There were 216 compliance checks conducted in Pittsburgh alone.
These investigations are still open, and therefore, the names of businesses will be withheld.
The check-ins come unannounced and occur at random areas throughout Pennsylvania.
But special consideration is being given to areas with higher densities of COVID-19 presence.
