COVID-19 Related Emergency Order
On Monday, March 16, Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker released an executive order stating businesses that offer food or beverages for on-premises consumption – including restaurants, bars, grocery stores and food halls – must suspend services for in-person dining. However, the Executive Order allows these businesses to continue serving via drive-through, curbside pickup, and delivery services.
In response to the Governor’s executive order restricting on-premises consumption of food and beverage, Mayor Marlin has executed an emergency order to allow qualified bars and restaurants to deliver packaged alcohol in its original, sealed packaging for off-site, legal consumption.
The Mayor’s Office has sent a notice of this order to all qualifying liquor licensees who have placed an email address on file with the Local Liquor Control Commissioners Office. The City of Urbana encourages our citizens to continue shopping at all of our local businesses through curbside pickup, online or gift card purchases at your favorite establishment.
