Just three weeks after Florida’s bars were allowed to start pouring drinks again, the state reinstated its ban on alcohol service onsite. The announcement came minutes after Florida reported almost 9,000 new COVID-19 cases in a single day. In Orlando, like elsewhere in the state, some bars and restaurants had voluntarily returned to retail and takeout service only, while others seemed to ignore capacity and social distancing rules entirely. Meanwhile, the choice between health and finances is becoming even more stark, with unemployment beginning to run out for food and beverage employees as coronavirus infections continue to soar.

Thanks to Orlando composer Julian Bond for providing original music for UnWineding, Amy Tardif for editorial guidance, and WMFE for distribution and promotional assistance.
