As the nation started to reopen businesses slowly, some stringent rules were imposed to help cut down the growing numbers of Coronavirus cases.
One of them was the restrictions imposed on the restaurants. The eateries, all across the country, were asked to reduce their capacity to 50%, to mandate wearing masks for both the staff and the customers, and to make sure no one is there at the bar.
Florida, especially the Southern part of the state, has faced the major hit by the COVID-19 since the beginning of the reopening. Both the business owners and the citizens were expected to follow the rules strictly.
However, South Florida restaurant owners are waging battles with their wagers daily. Many fervent restaurant rule resisters refuse to wear masks in public space and want to drink among a closely-packed group of friends.
The restaurant and bar owners are finding it hard to put up a fight against their customers, hence the police and inspectors are patrolling on the streets of South Florida to make sure they are complying with all the safety measures.
Miami mayor Francis Suarez told CNN about his plans to ask the city commissioner to levy civic tax up to $250 for people who refrain from wearing masks in public.
