Bars in Florida will now be allowed to operate at 50% capacity beginning today, said Halsey Beshears, secretary for the Florida Department of Business & Professional Regulation.
The state rescinded the governor’s March emergency executive order affecting the way bars can operate in the state during the coronavirus pandemic.
Bars and other alcoholic beverage vendors may resume sales of alcoholic beverages for consumption on premises provided that their operations comply with the parameters of Florida’s Phase 2 recovery plan. These vendors may operate at 50% of the facility’s indoor capacity, allow bar service to seated patrons and permit outdoor seating and service with appropriate social distancing.
