During an interview with ABC News on Tuesday, Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer said that he couldn't see how bars could reopen safely in Orlando until a vaccine for coronavirus is developed.
"I think bars are in one of the most difficult situation because, unlike a restaurant where you might go with your family and sit in a booth and be able to isolate or socially distance, when you go to a bar you're going there to interact with people," said Dyer. "You're not going there to sit in a corner and drink your beer by yourself."
