Palm Beach County businesses reopen under “Phase 2” guidelines today

Today, September 8, 2020, Palm Beach County businesses, including restaurants, will reopen in “Phase 2” under the county’s Board of Commissioners’ Emergency Order #24 (EO24). Today will be “Step 1” of “Phase 2” for businesses to reopen, and for example it enables restaurant guests to sit at the bar, so long as social distancing practices are in effect. EO24 affects businesses in both incorporated and unincorporated Palm Beach County (county-wide). The county’s emergency orders are the government’s response to COVID-19 and the emergency orders handed down by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
