Release Date: Friday, September 18, 2020 FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Friday, September 18, 2020 CONTACT: Jake Holmes, (515) 725-2041, firstname.lastname@example.org (ANKENY) – The Iowa Alcoholic Beverages Division (ABD) is requiring licensees to complete a COVID-19 Compliance Checklist to assist in the implementation of proclamation requirements. The purpose of the checklist is for licensees to certify they’ve read and understand the terms and conditions of the proclamation. The answers to the questions will indicate the operational measures licensees have or will be taking to comply with the requirements as outlined in the proclamation. The checklist will assist in the event ABD receives a complaint about an establishment. Having information about a licensee’s social distancing operational measures will help expedite the investigatory process to resolve complaints in a timely manner. If licensees choose not to complete the checklist, an ABD investigator will visit the establishment to verify compliance with the proclamation and determine what other course of action will be taken as a result of not complying with this requirement.
