Governor Ron DeSantis announced Florida will enter Phase 3 of reopening the state’s economy.
Effective immediately, Gov. DeSantis announced in his press conference in St. Petersburg that restaurants and select businesses can operate at full capacity.
Phase 3 of Gov. DeSantis’ “SAFE. SMART. STEP-BY-STEP PLAN” ensures Floridians that restaurants can reopen at a minimum 50% capacity if the local government prohibits them from reopening at full capacity.
“Everybody has an opportunity and the right to work. Every business has the right to operate,” said Gov. DeSantis said.
With Phase 3, Gov. DeSantis said he will no longer place limitations on businesses due to coronavirus concerns.
“There will not be limitations from the state of Florida,” Gov. DeSantis said.
