Microbreweries and tattoo parlors impacted

Pursuant to recent Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR) interpretations, microbreweries and tattoo parlors are permitted to operate as follows:

Microbreweries that partner with a food truck, an adjacent food establishment, or operate with food on-site may sell alcohol for on-premises consumption with the same restrictions as set forth in Governor DeSantis’ Executive Order 20-123, including 50% capacity, social distancing, appropriate seating configurations, and no bar seating. A microbrewery may partner with a Food Truck if it can be contained completely on-site where food trucks are permitted by City Code.

Tattoo parlors may open with 15 minutes between appointments, no group appointments, and all employees must wear masks. As they are being considered a Personal Services Business, they should refer to the cosmetology guidelines as issued by DBPR.
