Well, we hate to say it, but Florida is No. 1 again. This time it’s in the number of coronavirus infections. In fact, as of last week’s report, 20% of new U.S. infections happened in the Sunshine State (Florida is also the only state in the country to do weekly reports). And while 59% of eligible Floridians have received at least one dose of a vaccine, the Tampa Bay Times says, “The number of first doses administered dropped to 110,525, the sixth consecutive week that first-dose vaccines have fallen.”
That said, the state has not set any mandated coronavirus precautions on businesses, but some of the venues listed below have their own protocols. Respect the spaces, and respect each other. Wear a mask, and don't take live music for granted.
