Pennsylvanians were driving out of state to buy liquor, so neighboring states banned them – CNN

(CNN)About a month ago Pennsylvania closed all its state-owned liquor stores in an attempt to stop the spread of coronavirus, so residents started driving to neighboring states to get their alcohol.

Now Ohio and West Virginia have put a stop to that.
Shoppers in six counties along the Pennsylvania border can buy liquor in person only if they have a valid Ohio photo ID or a valid active-duty military photo ID, according to a statement from Ohio Governor Mike DeWine.
“Any other time, we’d love to have visitors from PA, but right now this creates an unacceptable public health issue,” DeWine tweeted.
