Movie theaters and bowling alleys that were restricted from opening under Phase 1 of Florida’s reopening plan can open on June 5th in 64 counties Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said today.

Also bars, and concert halls can reopen at 50% capacity inside, full capacity outside if customers are served seated.

Visitors are still prohibited from entering long term care facilities, DeSantis said as they remain a top priority to protect from COVID-19 spread under DeSantis’ “Safe, Smart, Step-by-Step,” reopening strategy.
