Announcement from Governor Desantis
We have an announcement to make that you should be interested in. Since our Florida Legion Posts have a liquor license issued by the State of Florida, they must comply with the following order:
Under the guidance of the Department of Health (DOH), using his authority under the state’s COVID-19 disaster declaration order, Governor Desantis today ordered all all bars and nightclubs closed as of 5:00 pm today for 30 days. He also ordered all restaurants to cut their capacity by 50% and follow social distancing. The state will continue to monitor COVID-19 and at the end of 14 days will reevaluate and decide whether continued mitigation is needed. Governor Desantis has ordered all bars to cease operations for 30 days when the current situation will be reevaluated.
“Ensuring the health and safety of Floridians is the highest priority….it is in the best interest of the public to encourage social distancing in our restaurants and anywhere people congregate.
Since our Posts are licensed by the State of Florida and come under the jurisdiction of the State of Florida, we must comply with all state rules, regulations and Executive Orders. Posts with Liquor Licenses and Cooking Facilities must take special note as very specific restrictions have been placed upon those business operations.

Call 911 WHEN YOU CAN, TEXT 911 ONLY IF YOU CAN'T
Broward County launched an enhanced 911 system that features “Text to 911” capability. This helps those in our community who are deaf, hard of hearing, or speech impaired. It may also be helpful in situations when placing a voice call could put you in further danger – as in a home invasion or abduction.
However, it’s important to know: Always call 911 if you can, text only if you can’t.
Here are a few reasons why:
When texting, your location will NOT automatically be transmitted to 911; you must type your exact location/address or first responders will be unable to find you;
As you have likely experienced in your day-to-day communications, text messages may be delayed or not received at all;
Text communication takes longer than placing a phone call;
Language translation is NOT available using text;
You must have a text or data plan to use the service;
Remember: ALWAYS CALL 911 IF YOU CAN, TEXT ONLY IF YOU CAN’T
If you feel that texting is your only option, be sure to use plain and clear language (no emojis, abbreviations, slang, or links). Keep in mind that there is a 160-character limit per text. Photos and videos will NOT transmit. You must also be prepared to respond to text messages from 911 until they have all of the information they need.
Remember: CALL IF YOU CAN, TEXT 911 ONLY IF YOU CAN'T
