Following the lead of Governor DeSantis, Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer has retracted the City of Orlando’s prohibition on the sale of all alcohol for on premises consumption as it relates to restaurants.

Dyer stated in a tweet: “Per the Governor’s Executive Order, restaurants within the city can sell alcohol for onsite consumption, but must limit their occupancy to 50% of current building occupancy, ensure at least a 6-foot distance between any groups of patrons and limit parties to no more than 10.”

Dyer has asked that residents adhere to CDC recommendations and avoid social gatherings with 10 or more individuals.

Orlando police officials have stated that the governor’s executive order will be enforced by the state not local law enforcement.
