Reopening guidelines: Florida Restaurant & Lodging Association

The Florida Restaurant & Lodging Association is working very hard on your behalf to help your through this difficult time with valuable resources and information.   The Governor’s Task Force to reopen Florida met this past week. Our FRLA team worked diligently with our partners at the National Restaurant Association and the American Hotel and Lodging Association to develop reopening guidelines for our industries. We are hoping that this will avoid our state and our country from having a patchwork of requirements that will vary from county to county.  Visit our FRLA website for valuable resources and information.

Re-Open Guidelines These guidelines are now public information and I want you to have them since many of our members are being asked to serve on local government task forces.  PLEASE NOTE….these guidelines have NOT been adopted by the state yet; however, Secretary Beshears of DBPR read portions of this into the record yesterday. In addition, they have been provided to the FRLA members that are serving on the Governor’s Task Force. It is very important, that you understand they are our recommendations and not the Governors. We are hopeful that these will become the new Florida guidelines. As soon as we have more details, I will share them with you.

Re-Open Public Comment Many of you have asked what you can do to support our efforts. This weekend, the Governor’s Re-Open Florida Task Force launched a public comment submission portal open to all Floridians and asked for public feedback. We encourage you to visit the portal, linked below, to share your thoughts on safely re-opening Florida businesses and getting our industry on track to recovery. We also ask that you share your support for FRLA’s Re-Opening Standards and Recommendations: Re-Opening Critical COVID-19 Guidance Standards for Hospitality Re-Open Public Comment Visit our FRLA Website
