“Bars” In “Palm Beach County” Will Not Reopen On Monday!


Unlike the rest of Florida, bars in Palm Beach County will not reopen at 50 percent capacity on Monday, according to a county leader.

A county official tells CBS12 News the reopening of bars is in step 5 of the county’s Phase 2 reopening plan.

On Thursday, Department of Business and Professional Regulation Secretary Halsey Beshears announced the rescinding of an emergency order that prevented people to drink alcohol at bars during the coronavirus pandemic.

“Beginning Monday, these vendors may operate at 50 percent of the facility’s indoor capacity, allow bar service to seated patrons, and permit outdoor seating and service with appropriate social distancing,” the state said in a news release.
