The state of Florida is once again suspending the consumption of alcohol on the premises at bars amid a spike in COVID-19 cases.
Effective immediately, the Department of Business and Professional Regulation is suspending on premises consumption of alcohol at bars statewide.

The state's Department of Business and Professional Regulation made the announcement Friday morning.
The news comes as Florida continues to set records for daily increases in COVID-19 cases, with Friday's numbers showing nearly 9,000 new cases.
Bars were allowed to reopen earlier this month as part of Governor DeSantis' Phase 2 of reopening.
It is unclear at this time if any of the other Phase 2 reopenings will be impacted by this.
The order goes into effect immediately.
