Florida Living During Covid 19 – Phase 3

Governor Ron DeSantis issued Executive Order 20-244 on Friday, September 25, 2020, moving all of Florida’s 67 counties into Phase 3.

Executive Order 20-244 does the following:

  • Removes state-level restrictions on businesses, such as restaurants.
  • Provides that no COVID-19 emergency ordinance may prevent an individual from working or operating a business, giving Floridians and business owners needed certainty and the ability to provide for themselves and their families.
  • Provides that restaurants may not be limited by a COVID-19 emergency order by any local government to less than 50% of their indoor capacity. If a restaurant is limited to less than 100% of its indoor capacity, such COVID-19 emergency order must satisfy the following:
    1. Quantify the economic impact of each limitation or requirements on those restaurants; and
    2. Explain why each limitation or requirement is necessary for public health.
  • Suspends all outstanding fines and penalties, and the collection of such moving forward, applied against individuals related to COVID-19.
