Governor Ron DeSantis issues Executive Order 20-244 moving all of Florida’s 67 counties into Phase 3.
On Friday, September 25th, Governor Ron DeSantis moved the entire state into Phase 3 of his step-by-step reopening plan. As a result, all businesses that had been closed in Palm Beach County may now open. This includes stand-alone bars, nightclubs, adult entertainment establishments, hookah, cigar and other smoking bars and lounges, auditoriums, concert halls, bingo parlors and comedy clubs. All businesses in the county will be limited to an operating capacity of 50%.
“Our measured response has been effective,” said Mayor Kerner, “but the governor has reiterated that we still have a long way to go in the COVID-19 battle, and this government in Palm Beach County will not relent.”
