Talking to some people in the restaurant business in st Augustine. They said they are having a meeting with the mayor to see if restaurants will be opened or closed this week.

Has anyone else heard of activities in Florida being shut down?

Most don't have the legal authority to do it, but the sheeple will fall in line.

We did Spring Break last week and everything was closing today. All the amusement parks, aquariums, etc. The restaurants/bars hadn't been mentioned at that point.

Right now at 1 month suspension of the volunteer program in Sarasota Co, Parks closed, main one being the Knights Trail shooting range. Fishing yesterday at the north jetty and the beach area was packed!

Alachua county gov't offices closed, High Springs gov't offices closed, schools closed until the 15th, all Disney venues closed.  List goes on.

When they close the Waffle House, then we will know the end times are upon us.

Somebody does not understand how emergency powers work.  The POTUS, State Governors and some Mayors have extraordinary and scary powers.
The Governors always have the National Guard.  NG 4, Kent Sate 0.

My AC was out today. I went to the parts store and found the doors locked with a sign. I had to sit in my truck, call them, complete the sale over the phone, and wait until they poked their heads out the door, dropped the part in a box, and quickly closed the doors again.

Yes, but the question originally focused on mayors. Cities.

All bars here in Monroe, some are staying open and restaurants don’t adhere to the 50% deal and 6 foot separation. Most tourists have bailed, save for the idiots from dade and broward that are using this as a vacation; haven’t seen it such a ghost town since post-storms. There is no traffic SB to speak of but NB with yankee tags, RV’s, and rental cars are plentiful. Banks are limiting to $2500 withdrawals and closing lobbies today, but I was told that’s due to robbery concerns and the resort on my island here is empty and lots of cancellations daily. Publix was pretty stocked except TP and PT and spaghetti, everyone was local so it was a very friendly trip, zero rudeness around town and only saw one older gentleman with gloves an an N95 on. Pretty much everyone here is friendly when it’s not tourist season and the driving has certainly mellowed out. Strange times.

We had our first death in Jax. Dude was 83. I've heard the average age of those dying is either 60 or 80. Either way, they're older victims. I read about a 21-y-o soccer coach in Spain who died. Oh, by the way, he also has leukemia. So is the virus really the major killer or is it simply more impactful to those with other health issues?

Pinellas County board of supervisors just voted to close ALL beaches for two weeks.  Over the objection of the Sheriff and despite the County Attorney's warning that closing the beaches but leaving beachfront businesses open effectively kills those businesses.

Chick fil a by the house put "drive thru only" on their sign. Rumors of Ybor City in Tampa shutting down and boarding up were found to be false. Shoot Straight Tampa was open as usual the other day. Range was mostly empty but they were selling a ton of guns and ammo was getting real thin. Spouse's company has gone entirely to working from home. Lots of people in my office have been going remote as well but standing orders are still to show up.

Never did find all those NG the guy in GD mentioned the other day either. Kind of disappoint

Yes, restaurants can still take orders for delivery or pickup but can't have customers dining inside.

Not in Jax. My friends recently bought a place at the beach and the barricades were going up yesterday. Police and lifeguards patrolling and supposedly you'll be cited for trespassing. St. Augustine was still open.

DeSantis shuts down gyms, non-emergency medical procedures, and more

Earlier in the day, he issued four executive orders in rapid fire succession that mandated federal social-distancing guidelines in nearly every aspect of life in the Sunshine State.

In Broward and Palm Beach counties, the epicenter for the virus in Florida, DeSantis ordered all movie theaters, concert houses, auditoriums, playhouses, bowling alleys, and arcades closed.

Statewide, he closed all restaurants and taverns for on-site dining. And all commercial gymnasiums and fitness studios will be shuttered until at least May 8, when the declared state of emergency is scheduled to expire.

With another executive order, DeSantis banned hospitals, surgery centers and dental offices from performing any "non-urgent" procedure so long as the delay does not contribute to “the worsening of a serious or life-threatening” condition.

And DeSantis temporarily lifted a legal requirement for local governments to have a physical quorum present to conduct business.

I would advise all alcohol sales be made at WM, WD, Fresh Market, Whole Foods or Target.
Suggested purchasing the following;
Beam Brands
Tito's
Bacardi Brands
Campari Brands
Deutsch Brands
Trinchero Family Estates

Here is a pretty cool dashboard for the state statistics on Covid. It also shows global numbers but you can drill down to counties in Florida and see some interesting details I am not seeing reported otherwise.  Click the link, scroll down and open the dashboard which is live updated.

Beaches, but the way I’m reading the law, the Counties can only enforce it if you are using County/City owned access. If you own or park at a buddies house on on a right of way, they cannot do jack shit once you are on the beach. Staying in a hotel? Can’t do jack shit to you for going on the beach using the hotel access.

My Mom lives in Naples and they straight up said that people with houses on the beach could be on the beach.
