Full Phase 1 Reopening – Effective May 18, 2020

Plan for Florida’s Recovery

Phase 1 of the Plan for Florida’s Recovery took effect May 4, 2020 and was updated effective May 11, 14 and 15, 2020. 

Phase 2 will take effect once Gov. DeSantis determines it is suitable to continue re-opening and after fully considering medical data in consultation with state health officials. 

Local governments may adopt requirements directly on businesses, operations or venues, including buildings, beaches and parks, that may be stricter than the state. Report a business that violates these orders to local law enforcement.

Note: Governor DeSantis has added Miami-Dade and Broward counties to Phase 1 effective May 18 and had added Palm Beach county to Phase 1 effective May 11, 2020.
