Covid-19 update as of 3/16/2020, Governor Scott orders the closure of all bars and restaurants statewide for dining in.

This is ever changing and every update is important

This will appear in the List Serv in the morning, I am sure, but I wanted to pass it along as soon as I received it. I had added the other updates to the original story but thought this one should be separate so that it can be seen and not buried in a previous story.

Here is the update

- Gov. Scott restricted all public gatherings to either 50 people or 50% occupancy, whichever is less.
