Full Phase 2 of Florida's Reopening
Posted on June 5, 2020
Gov. DeSantis’ Full Phase Two of Florida's Recovery plan went into effect today, Friday, June 5th. Bars, movie theaters, and bowling alleys are among the businesses permitted to open their doors and operate at 50% capacity. Additionally, the plan increases restaurants, retailers, and fitness centers to full capacity.
Our St. Lucie is a free, digital resource created for St. Lucie County residents and businesses to share information during this time of global crisis. We’ve updated our 'What's Open' section to include Summer Camps in St. Lucie County and will continue to update it regularly as businesses open up and Florida's Recovery Plan continues to unfold.
We encourage you to share this email and the website with others so it can be of benefit to as many people and businesses as possible.
Take care, stay well, and we look forward to being able to see you soon
