Governor Ron DeSantis has once again tightened restrictions on Florida restaurants due to COVID-19.
In an executive order today, he ordered businesses to stop serving food and alcohol for onsite consumption.
Restaurants can stay open for takeout and delivery, however. The order also suspends a state law that prohibits most restaurants from selling alcohol for takeout. Those sales are now permitted, provided the alcohol is in a sealed container and food is included in the same order.
Today’s directive supersedes Tuesday’s order that allowed restaurants to stay open at 50% capacity.
