As Florida begins to reopen, Pinellas County leaders are being a little relaxed on recommendations.

Governor DeSantis specifically said he would be keeping movie theaters shut during the first phase, even though the Reopen Florida Task Force would have allowed them to open.

Pinellas leaders stepped in and said venues like movie theaters, concert halls, auditoriums, bowling alleys, arcades, playhouses and casinos will be allowed to reopen in full Phase One with strict cleaning and disinfecting required.

Large spectator sporting events will also be allowed with up to 25 percent of capacity!!!!  Whoooo Hoooo were getting closer!

The governor mentioned sports in his executive order on Friday, saying professional sports may operate and venues can host training, competitions, events and games. His order did not give details on spectators. However, guidelines from his Reopen Florida Task Force say he could have allowed 25 percent of occupancy.

Okay…so this is awesome news!!! C’mon….football!  We’re so close!  I think that is what a lot of us want this year.  Football…and concerts.
