Broward County officials announced Monday that they are now lifting most COVID-19 capacity restrictions and sanitation requirements for outdoor activities effective immediately.
The decision comes as more Broward residents get the COVID-19 vaccine and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention updates its guidelines for outdoor activities. As of April 18, 2021, a total of 453,269 individuals in Broward have been fully vaccinated and an additional 280,657 individuals have received at least their first dose.
“As summer approaches and outdoor restrictions are relaxed, we encourage all eligible Broward residents to get vaccinated, and enjoy the many outdoor activities the County has to offer,” said Broward Mayor Steve Geller.
The county says that social distancing and facial mask requirements will remain in place for the foreseeable future along with certain indoor sanitization and signage requirements.
As vaccination rates increase, regulations will be further reduced by additional amendments to the Comprehensive Emergency Order.
