Florida bars reopened at 50% capacity yesterday as the state’s COVID-19 cases continue to subside. Department of Business and Professional Regulation Secretary Halsey Beshears signed an executive order Thursday night that rescinds the restrictions placed on bars three weeks after they reopened in June after coronavirus cases surged. Alcohol vendors may now operate at 50% capacity, serve seated patrons, and permit outdoor seating and service with appropriate social distancing.
