Canton, Cherokee County allow beer, wine to go

Seeking to encourage residents to patronize dining establishments through the COVID-19 crisis, Cherokee County and the city of Canton announced temporary permission for restaurants to sell beer and wine to go with food orders.

Cherokee County Chief Marshal Ron Hunton announced a temporary suspension, through April 30, of county ordinances so that license holders of “consumption on the premises” alcohol licenses can sell unopened bottles of beer and uncorked wine with carry out food. Information: https://bit.ly/2UxWv6a
