As the City prepares for the weekend, it is essential to remember that a Stay-at-Home order has been issued to protect residents from the spread of Coronavirus (Covid-19). This order has been passed by all 31 Broward County cities with the support of the Broward League of Cities and the Broward County City Manager’s Association. A violation of this order is enforceable and can lead to arrest, fines, or both.
The order to stay at home does not require residents to confine themselves to the interior of their homes. Residents may make use of all exterior portions of their homes, such as patios, porches, yards, and driveways. Residents may also leave their place of residence and travel to another location in accordance with the following:
Please Adhere to the Social Distancing Requirements
Cover all coughs and sneezes with their elbow or tissue.
Do not shake hands.
Do not enter any public place if the person exhibits any flu or COVID-19 like symptoms and/or has a fever over 99.9 degrees Fahrenheit unless that person is traveling to or from a hospital, doctor’s office, urgent care, walk-in clinic, or pharmacy.
If a person is exhibiting flu or COVID-19 like symptoms or has a fever over 99.9 degrees Fahrenheit and is seeking medical treatment, the person shall first contact their medical provider by phone before appearing at the medical provider’s office.
If a person is exhibiting flu or COVID-19 like symptoms or has a fever over 99.9 degrees Fahrenheit and requires a prescription or a refill thereof and the pharmacy has a drive-thru window and/or delivery service, that person shall utilize the drive-thru window and/or delivery service to receive their medication.
