BROWARD COUNTY EXPANDS PHASE 1 REOPENINGS; FACIAL COVERING REQUIREMENTS; SUNSHINE CHILDCARE CAMP CANCELED FOR JUNE
DAVIE, Fla. – Today, Broward County Administrator Bertha Henry issued Emergency Order 20-12, consolidating directives contained in several previous Emergency Orders and clarifying business and resident responsibilities for adherence to social distancing, facial covering, and sanitation requirements as recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Specifically, the Emergency Order:
The Order reminds the community when facial coverings are required and that they are not a substitute for social distancing. Facial coverings must continue to be worn by employees in reopened businesses during in-person interactions with the public; by members of the public when obtaining goods and services from public businesses, unless the service precludes wearing of a facial covering (such as eating or face grooming); and by workers involved in the preparation of food, even if they are not engaged in interactions with the public, with exceptions as noted in the Order. An emergency order regarding beaches, commercial gyms and hotels will be issued this week.
Childcare Camp Canceled for June
Sunshine Child Programs will not provide summer camp services at Town facilities (Pine Island Multipurpose Center, Ivanhoe Community Center, and Eastside Community Center) during the month of June. This is due to the current requirements and restrictions issued by Department of Children and Families, Child Care Licensing, the State of Florida, and Broward County School Boards. If requirements and restrictions change in the coming weeks, Sunshine may be able to host a modified camp in July.
