TAMPA, Fla. — Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is ordering all restaurants and food establishments to stop offering dine-in service at their buildings.
They will only be allowed to operate their kitchens for delivery or take-out services.
The updated executive order, published Friday, is part of the state's ongoing effort to help limit the spread of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19.
Additionally, it stops restaurants from selling alcohol for people to drink at the restaurants -- but allows them to deliver alcohol as long as it's in a sealed contained and delivered with a food order.
Finally, the governor has ordered the closure of all gyms and fitness centers in the state. That part of the order doesn't apply to fitness centers in hotels and residential buildings that have the capacity for fewer than 10 people.
