Updated February 16, 2021

As the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic continues to impact the community, the Town of Davie will continue to prioritize the health and safety of our residents, businesses, and visitors. Our goal is to do all we can to reduce the chances of COVID-19 from spreading and ensure we provide a safe environment for the entire community.

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses common throughout the world, some causing illness in people and others among animals. COVID-19 is a new coronavirus that can cause mild to severe illness.

COVID-19 is a respiratory illness that can spread from person to person. The virus was first identified during an outbreak in China and has since spread to many other countries, including the United States. Multiple variants of the virus that causes COVID-19 have been documented in the United States and globally during this pandemic.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) are actively responding to both national and global outbreaks. The Florida Department of Health is carefully monitoring the outbreak of COVID-19 in Florida and the United States.

REOPENING INFORMATION

Governor Ron DeSantis has issued Executive Order 20-244, placing all of Florida into Phase 3 of the State's COVID-19 recovery plan. In response to the Governor’s order, Broward County has issued Emergency Order 20-26

The Governor's order affects Broward County in the following manner:

  • All state restrictions are lifted, but counties in South Florida, the former epicenter of the COVID-19 pandemic, have been advised they may enforce certain local rules with respect to Phase 3 reopening.
  • No businesses are closed as a result of COVID-19; all businesses may open but County Emergency Orders that are not preempted by the Governor’s Executive Order still apply. 
  • Suspends Broward County’s ability to fine individuals for not wearing a facial covering. 
  • Under the Governor’s Order all businesses, including bars, nightclubs, and other establishments previously closed by local emergency orders, have been reopened. Local jurisdictions retain some rights to impose guidelines and restrictions. 

All amended requirements can be viewed in Emergency Order 20-26.

Broward County has issued Emergency Order 20-27, which clarifies requirements for establishments that serve food and/or alcohol:

  • On-premise consumption of food and alcohol must end at 11 p.m.
  • Establishments licensed to serve food may operate at up to 100% of indoor capacity if a distance of six feet is maintained between tables, and no more than six people sit at a table. Should an establishment not be able to meet the minimum 50% capacity requirement (as set forth by the Governor's Executive Order), an establishment may, to reach the 50% capacity level, allow patrons to stand at an assigned table or in an assigned area, and must comply with social distancing requirements to the maximum extent possible.
  • Establishments that only serve alcohol (that are not licensed to serve food) must operate at no more than 50% of the establishment’s indoor capacity.
  • Total combined occupancy of indoor and outdoor areas shall not exceed the existing total maximum occupancy.
  • Allows individuals at fitness centers and gyms to remove facial coverings while working out, but requires they be worn by individuals at all times when not engaged in physical activity, such as while moving between machines and around the establishment.
  • Permits hot tubs to open in homeowner association (HOA) communities, but operations are subject to more stringent rules that may be imposed by the HOA.

Please note: 

Housing developments may impose more stringent requirements beyond those required by a Broward County Emergency Order. Pool decks or pools in multifamily housing developments, condominium developments, condominium hotels, or single-family homeowner associations (collectively, "housing developments") may operate, subject to the following requirements: 1. Such pools and pool decks are used only by current residents of the housing development, their families, and their guests. 2. Six feet (6’) foot social distancing CDC guidelines are adhered to; 3. Pool deck and pool occupancy are limited to no greater than fifty percent (50%) capacity; and 4. The housing development ensures that pool chairs, railings, gates, tables, showers, and other equipment at the pool and pool deck are sanitized on a regular basis. Except as otherwise expressly allowed by any applicable Broward County Emergency Order, any use of these pool decks or pool areas that deviates from the CDC Guidelines or these requirements remains prohibited.
