On Friday, September 25, 2020, the state of Florida entered Phase 3, including Miami-Dade, Palm Beach and Broward counties. Executive Order 20-244, issued by Governor DeSantis, moves Florida to a full reopening of the economy, allowing bars, restaurants, theme parks, and most businesses to operate without restrictions. Restaurants can open at full capacity, but counties still have the ability to limit the capacity to no less than 50%. Disney, SeaWorld, and Universal are still running at limited capacity.
The Executive Order maintains that individuals should continue to social-distance and minimize time spent in large crowds, and businesses should practice adequate sanitation practices in order to stem the spread of coronavirus. The executive order still calls for older residents and vulnerable populations with underlying medical conditions to heed caution and avoid large crowds while practicing social distancing.
On September 14, 2020, Governor Ron DeSantis’ Executive Order allowed bars to reopen statewide at 50% capacity. The Orange County Strike Teams will work closely with the Department of Business and Professional Regulation and state Alcohol and Beverage officials, to confirm that all businesses are operating in accordance with CDC guidelines.
