Florida allows bars to reopen at 50% capacity starting Monday

Happy Hour will be back. State officials announced on Thursday night that bars in Florida will be allowed to reopen at 50% occupancy starting on Monday.

Halsey Beshears, Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation secretary, made the announcement on Twitter.

“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,” Beshears said in a statement.

Beshears also said bars, a sector of Florida’s hospitality industry, have endured “one of the toughest paths” for sustaining a business during this pandemic.
