Restaurants and retail can now reopen but with limited capacities.

Here is what is reopening on Monday, May 4:

– Florida state parks
– Elective surgeries can resume
– Restaurants may offer outdoor seating with 6 foot space between tables and indoor seating at 25% capacity
– Retail can operate at 25% of indoor capacity

Places not reopening during Phase 1:

– Bars, gyms and personal services such as hair dressers
– Schools remain distance learning
– Visits to senior living facilities are still prohibited

  • = Reopening date has not yet been announced as of Sunday, May 3.
