Broward County Emergency Order 20-23

Broward County Emergency Order 20-23 Clarifies Requirements of Previous Orders 

The number of Coronavirus (COVID-19) cases and positivity rates continue to rise in Broward County. On July 29, 2020, Broward County Administrator Bertha Henry issued Emergency Order 20-23, which clarifies requirements of previous active Emergency Orders.

Effective immediately, Emergency Order 20-23 states:

  • Residents are not required to wear facial coverings in their homes, nor are they liable for any facial covering violations made by guests. All facial covering requirements from previous Orders remain in full effect.
  • The owners of vacation rental properties approved to operate must provide the email and telephone number of their on-site management or security personnel to Reopening@Broward.org.
  • Outdoor, open air events are not permissible unless a reopening or operating plan is submitted to Reopening@Broward.org and approved by the County Administrator.
  • The requirements for properly placed signage now apply to all establishments. The requirement is no longer limited to restaurants and retail establishments. 8.5" x 11” signs must be placed conspicuously throughout all establishments, printed in color whenever possible, and posted in English, Creole, and Spanish languages at all main entry points.

  • Although schools are excluded from the definition of "establishments," they are strongly encouraged to follow all Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines. Extracurricular and non-academic activities, such as youth activities and summer camps, must comply with Attachment 16 of County Emergency Order 20-21.
  • Environmental activities permitted by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission to operate beyond sunrise to sunset, such as sea turtle nesting programs, are exempt from the guidelines for beaches outlined in Attachment 15 of County Emergency Order 20-21.
