BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Bars in Palm Beach County must remain closed, despite a just-issued order from the State of Florida suggesting that bars may now reopen.
This advisory was just transmitted from Palm Beach County:
Palm Beach County bars remain closed pursuant to Palm Beach Emergency Order 2020-024 and prior orders. The Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation Emergency Order 2020-010 issued yesterday, removes a state-wide bar closure order. Palm Beach County, however, was approved to move to Phase 2 in an incremental, step-by-step approach and bars in Palm Beach County are not permitted to open in our current Step 1 of Phase 2 and they must remain closed until an additional County order is issued.
The County Administrator and the Board of County Commissioners are closely monitoring indicators of COVID-19 prevalence and spread in Palm Beach County and will proceed with additional business openings in accordance with the recently approved Incremental Phase 2 Re-opening Plan for Palm Beach County.
