Texas and Florida Order Bars Closed Due to Covid Surge
Unless you’ve been living under rock or maybe in an Amish community the last six months, you know the recent pandemic has hurt businesses tremendously. Maybe no industry has been crushed harder than the bar and restaurant industries with shutdowns all over the country back in March, April and May. A beacon of light hit the bar industry when many states began lifting these bans in late May and June but unfortunately in several states it’s gotten worse, much worse.
Florida just this week hit a new record of 9,000+ cases in one day, Texas is seeing an infection rate of nearly 12% of it’s population. So this past week both Florida and Texas announced that all bars within the state either close or not sell alcohol on premise (which is essentially asking them to close). Restaurants will be able to operate but without selling alcohol as well.
