COVID-19 – Resources

ABL continues to monitor the rapidly changing situation related to the spread of COVID-19. Concern for the health and safety of our members and the entire hospitality industry is paramount, as is the impact on retail alcohol beverage licensees’ businesses.  ABL is actively lobbying the federal government for relief for those beverage licensees – primarily bars, taverns and restaurants – that have been forced to shutter their doors to prevent the spread of the virus.  ABL is also working with state affiliates to make sure that our members are getting the help they need.

Below are updates, information and resources that may be helpful to beverage licensees during this time.  Please feel free to let us know how we can be of assistance during this challenging time for our industry by emailing
