Rules could soon change for bars and restaurants in Alabama.
The Alabama Alcoholic Beverage Control Board is holding an emergency meeting Tuesday. The agenda for the meeting includes only one item, a vote on an emergency rule.
That vote could allow bars and restaurants to serve alcohol later. Last week, the board told WAAY 31 an emergency meeting would be called to discuss ending the ban on alcohol sales at bars and restaurants past 11 p.m.
A new rule would likely enforce safety guidelines, like 50% capacity, social distancing and masking. The meeting starts at 3 p.m.
