I was on one of the Villages Facebook pages last night about 10pm and they said City Fire outside bar was packed. I looked at the LSL webcam and can only see the square but there what appeared to be two young ladies sitting on the edge of a planter having a smoke. Apparently with no entertainment at the squares the other places are still hopping.

We ate in Orlando near the airport last night. The restaurants are open but serving no alcohol. The waiter told us it was by order of the mayor. When we arrived about 5:30pm it was almost empty. By the time we left it was about half full.

Governor said all bars and niteclubs would close on Tuesday night at 5pm. Restaurants remaining open for now. City Fire claiming to be just a restaurant is not closing their inside or outside bar. wth! Governor needs to address this to save people from themselves and others!

The Gov should shut down all he beaches, the density & behavior of some of the spring breakers are a health menace--they are undoing all the quarantine efforts

Come on DeSantis--close the beaches--these kids are going to infect more people than they know--they think the virus is a joke

Government exist to save people from themselves. Otherwise people will be virus deniers and infect others. Without big government people would be smoking cigarettes in restaurants and saying it’s their constitutional right

We stopped at Piesanos for take out to support local employees. We were going to stop order go to grocery and then pick up.

The manager said there was only one table of 2 in the restaurant if we wanted to dine in. He was correct. Tables were labeled for use and non use according to guidelines. We ordered, before our bread came, other table left, table cleared, and wiped down completely along with seating.

Our pizza arrived, and 2 other couples came in. Pizza was not served to us, and box for us to pack ourselves when we finished.When we left only 3 tables were occupied with 3 people or less. Waitstaff happy to see patrons, using distance to make sure you were doing well. As we finished governor, exect order to close restaurant to take out only.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WCTV) -- Governor Ron DeSantis has issued an Executive Order that directs all restaurants and food establishments in the state to suspend on-premise food and alcohol for consumption.

The Executive Order also requires the closures of gyms and fitness centers within the state.

State officials say, under the order, places may continue to operate their kitchens for the purpose of providing delivery or take-out services.

Being discussed here: No more dining-in.

We went to Piesano's this past Wed. Same thing - could only use every other table for dine-in. Seated right away -food was great- and the service was careful and quick. We will sorely miss dining in - but TRULY, BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY due to this outbreak.

.......

Just called Miller's Ale House (March 20th at 5:10pm). I was told their dining room is open for business with 50% capacity and as far as she knew, the restaurant will not be closing their dining room.

Could their dining room still be open because they are a bar/restaurant?

I don't think so. They will have to close, except for delivery and take out.

And to think.......the woman who answered the phone heard it first from me. Her response was that their restaurant is in Lady Lake, not The Villages. Why she thought I was in The Villages is beyond me as I never said where I lived. I informed her that this comes from the governor and is for the entire state of Florida.
