On Thursday, August 6, Governor Ron DeSantis signed Executive Order 20-192, which updates requirements for restaurants and lifts travel restrictions from New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. As Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidance has evolved from learning more about COVID-19, the Executive Order amends previous language related to restaurant employee screening and requires the Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR) to ensure restaurants implement employee screening protocols based on current CDC guidance.
As a reminder, Florida remains in Phase 2 of reopening under the Governor’s Smart. Safe. Step-by-Step. Plan. Additionally, the order (20-192) lifts the quarantine and shelter in place requirements for people traveling into Florida from the tri-state area (New York, New Jersey and Connecticut). The Florida Chamber will continue to monitor and advise on any updated guidance or rules issued by the Governor or government agencies.
