Florida enters Phase II of reopening. Here’s what it means

Exterior of Amalie Arena

Florida continues its push to let businesses and venues reopen with restrictions. On Friday, June 5, Florida will enter Phase II of reopening, with the exception of Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach. Florida Governor Ron DeSantis made the announcement on Twitter on June 3.

So what does Phase II include?

It includes allowing movie theaters, bars, nightclubs and concert venues to operate at 50% capacity.

Gyms will also be allowed to expand their capacity, as well as stores. Further restrictions can be placed at the discretion of city officials. This could mean spots like Amalie Arena, the myriad concert venues in Ybor City, and Tampa Theatre may begin allowing guests back inside.

We encourage you to follow your favorite local businesses to see what their official plans are.

Do you plan to visit any businesses when they’re allowed to reopen? Let us know in the comments.
