BROWARD COUNTY ISSUES EMERGENCY ORDER 20-27
DAVIE, Fla – Broward County has issued Emergency Order 20-27, which clarifies requirements for establishments that serve food and/or alcohol. The order is effective on October 2, 2020, at 12 a.m. Residents are urged to maintain their vigilance, even as Broward County embraces Phase 3 of reopening, as mandated by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis’ Executive Order 20-244, issued on September 25, 2020.
Included in the Governor’s Phase 3 reopening is the reopening of bars, night clubs, and other businesses that until September 25, 2020, were closed under Broward’s Emergency Orders.
While the Governor’s Order temporarily suspends the collection of individual fines for violations of Emergency Orders, including the wearing of facial coverings in public, residents are still urged to follow the guidelines issued by health officials.
Emergency Order 20-27:
A comprehensive new Emergency Order from Broward County will be issued in the near future, which will realign guidelines and restrictions for various businesses with the Governor’s latest Executive Order.
