Mayor Lori Lightfoot bans liquor sales after 9pm in Chicago


Mayor Lori Lightfoot has issued a sweeping curfew order on all liquor sales across Chicago, banning sales after 9 p.m. in the city’s latest attempt to curb the coronavirus pandemic.

“This is not punitive. It’s protective," Lightfoot said.

Earlier in the week, Lightfoot first floated the idea of enacting new rules to stop Chicagoans from congregating outside of liquor stores.
