BE SAFE & HELP OUR LOCAL IRB BUSINESSES
On March 18th, the City of Indian Rocks Beach announced specific requirements for all IRB restaurants and bars for immediate implementation that align with a Florida State Executive Order to manage COVID-19. The steps include reduced hours of operation, 50% reduction of seating capacities, groups size limits and social distancing, and restaurant employee screening. These changes impacted approximately 30-combined restaurants and bars in Indian Rocks Beach. All effected businesses are doing their best to survive these very challenging times. On March 20th Governor Ron DeSantis issued an executive order directing all restaurants to suspend on-premises food and alcohol. On March 25th Pinellas County Commission unanimously issued the "Safer at Home" directive that will last at least seven days.
The strength of these businesses is a lifeblood to our community that continue to make it a wonderful home to residents and destination for visitors. As very concerned citizens, we can help! Please patronize their carryout and delivery services, purchase eGift cards when possible and most importantly for the workers, tip generously. While we don’t know what the future may hold, let’s step up now and do our part to maintain our wonderful city. Together, we will get through this. Thank you for your support.
