Per the Governor’s press conference today and the executive order recently issued, except for the tri-county area, the rest of Florida is moving to Phase 2 of recovery starting on Friday. Per the Order, the Broward County Mayor (and Dade/Palm Beach) can make a written request to the state to enter Phase 2, subject to the State’s approval.
Phase 2 allows for bars and other venues licensed to sell alcohol for on-premises consumption to operate at 50 percent (excluding nightclubs) and for entertainment establishments such as movie theaters, concert houses, auditoriums, playhouses, bowling alleys, and arcades to operate at 50 percent with appropriate social distancing between groups and proper sanitation.
The Order also provides for the prior virtual meetings order to be in place until June 30, 2020.
Additionally, the State has added that residents should avoid congregations in groups larger than 50 people (previously 10).
