The Miami Herald reports:
The state will allow bars to reopen at 50% capacity starting Monday, Florida’s top business regulator announced via Twitter Thursday evening. But that’s not going to apply in Miami-Dade County.
Halsey Beshears, the secretary of the Department of Business and Professional Regulation, said that the state will rescind Executive Order 20-09, which forced some standalone bars and breweries to essentially shut down earlier this summer in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
Jennifer Moon, the Miami-Dade County deputy mayor overseeing emergency orders, said the county wouldn’t be adding bars to Monday’s planned lifting of bans on rental scooters, outdoor amusement parks and tour boats. “No bars,” she said.
We are rescinding amended EO 20-09 from DBPR as of Monday. Starting Monday, all bars will be reopened at 50% occupancy. pic.twitter.com/YqQR2MkJpR
