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.
DBPR Amended Emergency Order 2020-09 amends the provisions of DBPR Emergency Order 2020-09, as issued on Friday, June 26, 2020, to effectively order the following:
- vendors licensed to sell alcoholic beverages for consumption on the premises, but not licensed to offer food service, shall suspend sales of alcoholic beverages for consumption on the premises, provided that these vendors may continue to sell alcoholic beverages for consumption off the premises; and
- vendors licensed to sell alcoholic beverages for consumption on the premises, and also licensed to offer food service, may continue to operate as restaurants at 50% of seating occupancy for the service of food and beverages to customers seated at tables or bar counters with appropriate social distancing.
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.
