    Jokes aside, of course not. That's why I think it's so bizarre some states have kept them open.

    That's basically what happened in Denver yesterday when they tried to close liquor stores and dispensaries. The Mayor had to reverse course on the decision within hours

    I'd argue it is quite "essential" in order to help people deal with the situation and keep them somewhat calmer. This may not be a PC response, but that's the way I see it. Then again, I also never let my alcohol/wine stock get anywhere near that low. Even with the situation we're in now I'm not drinking every day anyway.

    There's a whole lot of real deal drunks that could take up hospital beds or even croak if they cant get their daily handle. It's sad but reality.

    People still have access to alcohol in other forms, beer, wine, etc. even with the liquor stores closed if you are somebody that needs it to cope, unless states were to ban the sale of it which would be a whole separate issue and something not likely to happen

    Actually in NJ even beer and wine can only be sold in liquor stores. They're not sold in grocery stores in NJ. So that's the perspective I'm speaking from.

    I can see why in your situation they are doing it, in New York, they are keeping liquor stores open but you can still by beer, wine, etc at grocery stores and gas stations so it wouldn't be essential for people to have access to alcohol
