KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Customers in Missouri will be able to purchase alcohol to-go through Dec. 30 after the state extended its emergency waiver allowing such sales on Friday.

Typically, to-go alcohol must be sold in its original packaging, but the waiver allows restaurants to repackage alcoholic beverages for curbside and delivery during the coronavirus pandemic.

Mission Taco told 41 Action News last month that to-go margaritas are what kept the restaurant afloat, prompting some establishments to push for the curbside sale of alcohol to be permanently legal.

The waiver requires that a meal be purchased with the liquor.

A similar policy is in effect in Kansas until further notice.
