Gyms reopen, restaurant seating expands Monday in Florida
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Gyms and fitness centers were allowed to reopen Monday and restaurants can now seat more customers, as Gov. DeSantis announced Friday that restaurants on Monday could expand their indoor seating to accommodate 50% occupancy, after being limited to 25% occupancy since May 4. Under the guidelines laid out by the governor, gyms can reopen at up to 50% capacity with social distancing measures in place. The governor’s phase one plan for gyms includes encouraging people to make appointments or schedule the use of equipment. “They have to provide how they're going to do it, how they're going to accommodate the guests, how they're going to protect the staff, and then they need to have an endorsement from the relevant official in their locality.”Movie theaters and bars, meanwhile, will remain closed.
