Some coronavirus restrictions are starting to ease up in parts of South Florida.

In Miami-Dade County, restaurants were allowed to welcome back diners to indoor seating Monday for the first time in almost two months, provided masks were worn and the establishments operated at 50% capacity.

Most indoor dining has been banned in the county since early July to stop the spread of the disease.

In Palm Beach County, officials issued an order allowing tattoo and body piercing parlors, as well as tanning salons, to reopen.
