(Reuters) – Florida Governor Ron DeSantis on Friday lifted all COVID-19 restrictions on businesses, including restaurants and bars, saying the threat of the coronavirus pandemic had eased sufficiently to allow the state to enter the final phase of its reopening.
The Republican governor’s order, which takes effect immediately, allows restaurants and bars to operate at full capacity with limited social distancing protocols. It requires local governments to justify any COVID-19 related restrictions on restaurants and bars.
