COLUMBUS, Ohio — Twenty-two percent of Ohioans are drinking while working from home, according to a new survey.

Alcohol.org surveyed 3,000 working Americans on whether they drink alcohol at home during working hours. Hawaiians are the most likely to have a drink while on the clock, with 67% of workers admitting to doing so.

Arkansas was on the other end of the scale, with just 8% of workers saying they had a drink while working at home.

As far as Ohio's neighbors go, the survey says 30% of Michiganders admitted to drinking at home while working, with Indiana and Kentucky at 26%, West Virginia at 33% and Pennsylvania at 38%.

The survey results showed beer is the beverage of choice for most of those who admitted to drinking. More than a third of respondents said they're more likely to drink in isolation and 20% said they had stockpiled alcohol in anticipation of self-isolation.
