Drink, virgins.

Nearly 400 state-owned stores of the Virginia Alcohol Control Office will return to normal operation from March 1, authorities said in a press release Thursday.

Hours have been cut since Jan. 24, when a surge in COVID-19 cases from the Omicron variant made it difficult for regular staff.

From March 1, all stores will be open until 10 a.m. every day, except for some stores that open regularly later on Sundays.

Closing times unaffected by omicron-related changes will still vary by location.

The transition to a normal regime has been made as the number of cases in Virginia and across the region has fallen sharply.

Customers can still place orders online at www.abc.virginia.gov for pickup or home delivery in most areas.
