Under Phase 2 of the Safe. Smart. Step-by-Step. Plan for Florida’s Recovery, licensed restaurants may:
- operate at fifty percent of the establishment’s indoor capacity;
- operate at full capacity in outdoor areas with appropriate social distancing;
- operate with seated service at bar areas; and
- if the sale of alcoholic beverages represents 50% or less of the restaurant’s gross revenue, offer sales of alcoholic beverages for consumption on the premises.
Pursuant to DBPR Emergency Order 2020-09 (effective June 26, 2020), the sale of alcoholic beverages for consumption on the premises is suspended for all licensed alcoholic beverage vendors who derive more than 50% of gross revenue from the sale of alcoholic beverages. Notwithstanding this restriction of sales for on-premises consumption, such vendors may continue to sell alcoholic beverages in sealed containers for consumption off the premises in accordance with Executive Order 20-71, Sections 1 and 2.
To report concerns regarding compliance of a restaurant or bar with the operating requirements as currently applicable during Phase 2 as outlined above, please complete the form below for referral to the Department of Business and Professional Regulation.
