TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Bars across Florida won't be able to serve drinks any time soon.

Friday, Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation Secretary Halsey Beshears announced that there are no plans for a reversal on the executive order that suspended on-premises consumption of alcohol at Florida bars.

He said that the state had a three week deadline to reevaluate the order. "Due to the continuing increase in positivity," Beshears said that the order will remain in effect.
