Emergency Order 2020-10

On the evening of Sept. 10, the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR) issued Emergency Order 2020-10, which permits bars to re-open on Monday, September 14, at 50% indoor capacity, allow bar service to seated patrons, and permit outdoor seating and service with the appropriate social distancing..

Under the Order, bars and other alcoholic beverage vendors may resume sales of alcoholic beverages for consumption on premises beginning Monday, provided that their operations comply with the parameters of Phase 2 of Governor DeSantis’ “Safe. Smart. Step-by-Step.” plan for Florida’s Recovery as established in Executive Order 20-139.

“In meetings with hundreds of owners of bars and breweries across the state, I’ve heard their stories of struggle, and I’ve observed their serious commitment to making health and safety a continuing priority in their businesses,” said DBPR Secretary Halsey Beshears. “It’s time that we take this step, and it’s vital that we start moving forward with this sector of our hospitality industry who have endured one of the toughest paths for sustaining a business during this pandemic.”
