American Legion Family Members,
Rumors are flying around that all "Bars" and some people read that as our "Social Quarters" and "American Legion Posts" can be open at 100 Percent capacity. THAT IS SIMPLY NOT TRUE!
Gov. Ron DeSantis lifted all restrictions on restaurants and other businesses in Florida today, and banned local fines against people who refuse to wear masks as he seeks to reopen the state's economy despite the spread of the coronavirus.
Governor DeSantis, acknowledged that the pandemic is far from over, but he said the threat has eased and the time has come to reopen for business.
“We’re not closing anything going forward,” DeSantis said, while insisting that the state is prepared if infections increase again.
The governor said he would stop cities and counties from collecting fines on people who don't wear face masks, virtually nullifying local mask ordinances.
“As an act of executive grace, all fines and penalties that have been applied against individuals are suspended," the governor said.
Today the Governor issued Executive Order 20-244 which you can download by clicking the link. The Executive Order is entitled Phase 3: Right to Work; Business Certainty; Suspension of Fines. It does not address the capacity limits for our Social Quarters or American Legion Posts.
Since our charter on July 1, 1980, American Legion Post 136 of Florida has been welcoming Veterans from all branches of our Armed Forces. Today, we continue to welcome all military personnel serving our country. Joining our Post enables you to continue serving your God, Country, and Community.
