Update 9/28/20: A previous version of this article did not include the current restrictions in Pinellas County, which are still in effect.
On September 25 Governor Ron DeSantis lifted restrictions on hospitality-based businesses.
Effective immediately, restaurants, bars, hotels, salons, movie theaters, and others can operate at 100% capacity, per the State of Florida. Businesses can also operate with limited or no social-distancing measures.
The State of Florida will no longer enforce operational limitations. Municipalities may uphold restrictions, but must allow businesses to operate at a minimum of 50% capacity.
Pinellas County still has Ordinance 20-14 in effect, which details the current county mask mandate as well as specific requirements for restaurants and bars, including that they operate at 50% capacity.
Phase 3 reopening also eliminates gathering-size restrictions and mandated minimum distancing.
