COVID-19 Update 66: Broward County Emergency Order Relaxes Some Restrictions

As the number of COVID-19 cases in Broward continues to decline as a result of the restrictions in place and residents and businesses abiding by those restrictions, Broward County has issued Emergency Order 20-25, which relaxes some business, athletic events, and function space restrictions.

Highlights of Emergency Order 20-25 include:
- Function spaces (ballrooms, banquet halls, catering halls, other event spaces) and other commercial facilities may operate on a limited basis.
- Spectators are permitted to attend non-professional sporting events such as high school athletic events with certain restrictions.
- Small groups (no larger than 10) can engage in athletic activities at beaches and in parks.
- Allows for additional flexibility for Homeowner Association amenities by relaxing some restrictions related to pool furnishings, common areas, and guests.

It is still vitally important that residents and business owners remain vigilant by continuing to follow safety protocols. Facial coverings and social distancing of six feet are still required under current Emergency Orders.

The Emergency Order is effective immediately, however the provision allowing banquet halls and other event spaces to reopen shall be effective on Friday, October 2, 2020.
