Florida's Governor Lifts All COVID-19 Restrictions On Businesses Statewide

Florida's Governor Lifts All COVID-19 Restrictions On Businesses Statewide”

"What that means for restaurants is that there will not be limitations in the state of Florida", DeSantis said.

Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) announced Friday that he will allow Florida businesses to move to Phase Three of the state's reopening plan, removing all restrictions because of the pandemic, despite the fact that the state had the highest death rate in the United States the previous day.

"Every business has the right to operate", DeSantis said.

Currently, Palm Beach County is under an incremental Phase Two, meaning restaurants can operate at 50% indoors and full capacity outdoors.

Almost 700,000 people have been infected with COVID-19 in Florida since the virus reached the state in March.

Florida businesses can still operate with any self-imposed restrictions under the order.

And if the National Football League has issues with insurance costs and potential liability, DeSantis said that "maybe we'll address that after the election here in Florida with the new Legislature".

Palm Beach County leaders announced on Thursday that bars can reopen on October 5.

DeSantis, in "an act of executive grace", also suspended "all outstanding fines and penalties that have been applied against individuals" associated with pandemic-related mandates, such as mask requirements.

"We need to get away from penalizing people for [not] social distancing", DeSantis said.

On Thursday, DeSantis said he wants to prohibit local governments from closing restaurants and bars, which many municipalities did earlier this year to slow the spread of COVID-19.

Since the state's number of cases peaked in July, the number of new infections have steadily declined.
