The Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulations (DBRP) issued an emergency order suspending the sale of alcohol at all bars and establishments in Florida who derive 50% or more of their sales from the sale of alcohol according to a statement released earlier today.

According to the DBPR Order, all vendors licensed to sell alcoholic beverages for consumption on premises and whose sales are 50% or greater in alcoholic beverages are suspended from selling any alcoholic beverages to the public until further notice.

The same vendors will still be permitted to sell sealed alcoholic beverages for consumption off of the premises.

Other licensed establishments such as restaurants whose gross sales consist of less than 50% alcoholic beverages for on-premises consumption will be permitted to remain open under the new executive order.

The order is a response to the record breaking spike in COVID-19 cases seen in Florida in the last two days with new cases reaching upwards of 10,000 cases.
