“Retail friction” coming back very soon

BY JENNIFER CABRERA

Alachua County’s brief reprieve from retail lines will apparently be short-lived: After issuing a new order on April 3 saying that occupancy will be restricted to 25% of capacity instead of the original 1-person-per-thousand-square-feet rule, it looks like the rules are changing again.

Gainesville Mayor Lauren Poe just tweeted: “Alachua County and Gainesville are finalizing an amended order as I tweet, clarifying that businesses are limited to one person per 1000 square feet. This is much safer for our neighbors and our workers. Enforcement is headed out now.”
