New Emergency Order Modifies Some Restrictions

As the number of COVID-19 cases in Broward slowly begins to decline, the County has issued Emergency Order 20-24, effective immediately, which modifies some business restrictions. These modifications, however, could be rescinded if the numbers begin to rise again due to non-compliance.

Highlights of Emergency Order 20-24 include: 

  • Restaurants can now serve customers on-premises until 11PM, extending closing hours by one hour. Billiard tables and similar games must remain closed.
  • The sale of off-site (to-go) alcohol by restaurants and food establishments is prohibited between 11PM and 5AM. Take-out and delivery of food is still permitted between 11PM and 5AM.
  • Open containers of alcohol are prohibited between 11PM and 5AM in all areas open to the general public.
  • Bars, pubs, breweries, billiard halls and clubs, and cocktail lounges which derive more than 50% of gross revenue from the sale of alcoholic beverages must remain closed. 

As we approach the Labor Day holiday weekend and expect visitors from around the country, it is even more important that residents remain vigilant by staying home when possible, not participating in large parties (social gatherings of more than 10 people), continuing to wash hands frequently, wearing face coverings and practicing social distancing, all of which are mandated under current Emergency Orders.  

Residents are reminded that while the numbers have started heading downward, they are still not where they need to be and now is not the time to let our guard down. "We are working hard to bring the positivity rate down in Broward County so that schools, businesses and the economy can reopen safely," said County Administrator Bertha Henry, "but we can’t do it alone. Everyone must do their part to help bring the numbers down during this public health, economic and social crisis." 

Residents are urged to visit or call 311 to anonymously report violations.
