Florida’s restaurant association calls on residents and visitors to wear masks

The Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association on Tuesday issued updated safety and operating guidance for members of Florida’s hospitality industry to ensure employee and guest safety.

The restaurant association’s updated policy comes in response to the Florida Department of Health issuing an updated public health advisory over the weekend.

Among the recommendations, FRLA is strongly encouraging all Florida residents and visitors to wear masks in public spaces, including at restaurants and hotels, and to practice social distancing. The document also highlights CDC recommendations for workplace safety and provides COVID-19 exposure guidance.

“Ensuring employee and guest safety is of the utmost importance,” said Carol Dover, President and CEO of the Florida Restaurant and Lodging Association. “All Florida businesses must do everything possible to contribute to the health and safety of our communities. We are strongly urging all Floridians to adhere to statewide Executive Orders, comply with the Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR) and other business regulators, follow CDC and the Florida Department of Health recommendations on mask-wearing and social distancing. These collective efforts will help ensure the safety of all Floridians and our visitors.”
