This is a stressful time for all of us, so we're glad to hear this one piece of good news:
Despite a slew of closings across all industries, it appears as if we'll all be able to drink.
Pennsylvania's Governor Tom wolf revealed to reporters Friday night that the state's liquor stores will stay open (for now).
The governor was asked if the state government's run liquor stores would stay open during this time, and the governor revealed that they have not considered closing those stores.
"We haven't closed any state stores at this point," Wolf said. "I don't know whether we consider that ... this is a somber time. We're trying. Try to be serious here."
Earlier on Saturday, the governor announced plans to encourage all non-essential businesses in Bucks County to close for two weeks.
