A Message from the Mayor and Commission
Thursday, July 2, 11:45 am

City offices will be closed on July 3 in observance of Independence Day, and City parks will be closed on the Fourth of July to help slow the spread of the Coronavirus.

Due to the increase in COVID-19 cases in South Florida, Broward County issued Emergency Order 20-20, modifying facial covering requirements and limiting the hours restaurants can operate. The Order, which goes into effect at 11:59 pm on Thursday, July 2, includes the following facial covering requirements:

• Everyone must wear facial coverings when in public spaces outside the boundaries of their home if social distancing of at least 6 feet can’t be consistently maintained from people not from their household.
• Everyone in any establishment, business or amenity in Broward County must wear facial coverings, including those working in any capacity and members of the public visiting the establishment. It also requires workers preparing, handling and serving food to wear facial coverings, and specifies that all persons in any common area of a multi-family housing development or residential facility must do so.
• People who don’t need to wear facial coverings include children under 2 years of age, any child at a licensed childcare facility and people with a disability or medical condition that prevents them from doing so. The Order also doesn’t apply to public health and safety, fire and other life safety personnel whose requirements are governed by the agencies for which they work.
• In addition, people aren’t required to wear facial coverings while engaged in strenuous physical activity or exercise and, for the shortest time possible, while receiving goods or services that preclude wearing a mask, such as when consuming food or drinks in restaurants or receiving facial grooming.

The Order also prohibits onsite dining and onsite alcohol consumption at restaurants/ food establishments between 12:01 am and 5 am. However, restaurants can continue to offer delivery, drive-through, pick-up or take-out services for food and alcohol during those hours.
