The county takes steps to reduce
Thanks to the willingness of many Broward County residents to get vaccinated against COVID-19, and according to the updated guide from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) for outdoor activities, effective immediately, Emergency Order 21- 01 Broward County amends the Comprehensive Emergency Order to lift most capacity restrictions and sanitation requirements for outdoor activities.
"As summer approaches and outdoor restrictions relax, we encourage all eligible Broward residents to get vaccinated and enjoy the many outdoor activities the county offers," said the Mayor of Broward, Steve Geller.
Vaccines can help stop the spread of COVID-19 and its variants, and residents are urged to get vaccinated as soon as possible. If you are one of the many Broward County residents who have already received the vaccine, thank you. You are encouraged to act as a "vaccine ambassador" for those who may have questions about vaccines. Share your experience and help educate them on the importance of achieving "herd immunity" so the County can ease further restrictions without compromising public health.
The social distancing and facial coverage (mask) requirements will remain in effect for the foreseeable future.
Certain indoor signage and sanitation requirements will continue. As vaccination rates increase, regulations will be further lowered through additional amendments to the Comprehensive Emergency Order.
As of April 18, 2021, a total of 453,269 people in Broward have been fully vaccinated and an additional 280,657 people have received at least their first dose.
