Today Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, through executive order, lifted all remaining coronavirus restrictions on restaurants and bars as well as banned the issuing of fines for those violating mask requirements or other local mandates. That order took effect immediately.
Bars and restaurants are no longer required to operate at less than full capacity. The executive order also prohibits local jurisdictions from closing businesses or collecting fines related to COVID-19 related mandates, e.g. mask requirement, limiting the size of groups, etc.
DeSantis said “We are today moving into what we initially called phase 3. And what that’ll mean for the restaurants is there will not be limitations from the state of Florida.”
“We’re also saying in the state of Florida everybody has a right to work.”
