Alcohol consumption is suspended on premises state-wide in Florida as attempts are made to curb rising COVID-19 cases

5 days ago in "The Walt Disney Company"

In a response to the rapidly rising number of COVID-19 cases in Florida, the Department of Business and Professional Regulation is suspending alcohol consumption in bars.


A tweet from Halsey Beshears - Secretary of Department of Business & Professional Regulation, said:

Effective immediately, the Department of Business and Professional Regulation is suspending on premises consumption of alcohol at bars statewide.

The move comes as the state records almost 9000 new cases yesterday, smashing the previous record of just over 5000 new cases.

The state of Florida allowed bars to reopen on June 3, operating at 50% capacity inside.

Walt Disney World is operating numerous bars at Disney Springs and it's resort hotels, which will presumably be required to follow this new guideline.
