COVID-19 General Liability Concerns as Florida Enters Phase 2

Posted in Legal Alerts on June 12, 2020

On June 3, 2020, Governor Ron DeSantis announced that most of Florida, exclusive of some South Florida counties, would enter Phase 2 of the Re-Open Florida Task Force’s Plan for Florida’s Recovery. Phase 2 permits restaurants to open at 50% capacity indoors exclusive of employees.  For the first time, bars, defined as “any licensee authorized to sell alcoholic beverages for consumption on premises that derive more than 50% of its gross revenue from the sale of alcoholic beverages” may open and operate at 50% capacity indoors with bar areas to be open with seated service. The re-opening provision does not apply to nightclubs, which must remain closed.  Both restaurants and bars may open outdoor seating, the only limitation being with “appropriate social distancing.” Executive Order 20-68 modified earlier Executive Orders and took effect on June 5, 2020.
