Florida Governor announces “Full” phase one re-opening!

BREAKING- Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has announced that starting May 18, businesses may enter a “Full” Phase 1 reopening. Florida businesses (with the exception of West Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami-Dade County) first entered Phase 1 on May 4.

What this means- Under this “full” Phase 1, restaurants can move up to 50% indoor capacity, with retail also moving up to 50% capacity, up from the initial 25% capacity. In addition, Gyms may reopen while respecting social distancing and maintaining high sanitation levels. At this time, movie theaters are to remain closed.

The Governor has also prompted theme parks to submit their reopening plans. These plans will require endorsement from the Orange County Mayor as well.

As we have previously reported, Disney Springs will begin its phased reopening on May 20, with third-party restaurants and stores now able to abide by the new increased capacity limits. Starting on May 27, Disney-owned shops and eateries will also reopen under the new guidelines.
