ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — Two Orange County businesses have been issued citations so far under the county’s executive order allowing businesses to be fined for COVID-19 violations.
Restaurant and bar Hong Fu and car dealership Universal Hyundai are both facing $300 fines, the county said Wednesday.
The businesses can contest the fines in court, but then the amount goes up to $500.
The county said eight businesses have also been issued warnings for not following COVID-19 safety protocols.
Those businesses include:
- Miracle Mattress & Furniture
- AutoZone (Orange Blossom Trail)
- Mi Dandera Supermarket
- Sunoco (Oak Ridge Road)
- Universal Service Center
- Pedro Tire Inc.
- Firestone (Lake Underhill Road)
- Muffler Man (Orange Blossom Trail)
According to the county, those businesses have 14 days to get into compliance before another strike team visit.
“If the business is found to be not in compliance after the follow up visit, a citation will be issued,” the county said. “If found in compliance, the warning will be moot.”
