California Alcohol Beverage Control agents enforce coronavirus orders

California Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) officials have cited 88 businesses statewide, 20 in Northern California, for violating state coronavirus guidelines.

SACRAMENTO COUNTY, Calif. — Coronavirus cases continue to surge across the state and officials are now starting to crack down on businesses not following state health orders.

The good news is that the state says most businesses licensed with Alcohol Beverage Control (ABC) are following the rules.

ABC says they have visited at least 13,000 locations and counting. At least 88 citations though have been issued to restaurants around the state and more than a dozen in Northern California were found violating state orders.

Many of the restaurants locally got the citations for not wearing masks or still operating indoors. ABC says the citation is a criminal misdemeanor citation for violating GOV. Code 8665.

ABC says a fine can cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars. They may also come with other disciplinary actions.

“It goes anywhere from a fine to a suspension on up to the revocation of the license depending on the track record of the business,” John Carr a spokesperson with ABC said.

ABC says that they have focused on educating businesses first on what the state orders are and how they can follow them.

“When the agents do come across a clear violation where it puts the public in a spot where public safety is compromised, then they will look at writing a citation,” Carr said.

The owner of a business who gets a citation does have the right to a hearing before a judge to present their case.
