Summary: Alcohol and COVID-19 has been, and continues to be, a lethal interaction. It is also important to consider the post-pandemic health and safety impacts of alcohol policies developed during the pandemic. As discussed throughout this report, any ‘temporary policy changes’ which have increased access to alcohol or lowered prices should be reversed. In support of this we point to the costs of alcohol that often exceed those of tax revenues and advise decision makers to consider impacts of alcohol consumption across full economic and social spectrums rather than promote the interests of selected production, distribution, and retail sectors. We point to the ethical implication that among all psychoactive substances, alcohol contributes most to ‘second-hand effects’ – those harms and costs accrued by persons or entities other than the drinker him or herself.
