Broward County, home to Fort Lauderdale, Port Everglades, and a huge number of amazing landmarks and experiences across South Florida, has recently updated their guidance for public gatherings and the intent to reopen in line with Florida's phased reopening.
From October 2nd up to 100 people may gather for events such as business meetings, seminars, and other social occasions such as beach weddings!
The county has delivered plenty of expert guidance, during the last few days alone I've received no less than 4 supplements to their comprehensive Emergency Order 20-25.
Mask wearing, hand washing, and social distancing guidelines are all well established. The new guidance helps further empower local businesses and would-be visitors to understand their responsibilities when holding or attending an event.
For example, venues will be required to apply a 50% capacity limit despite the 100-person allowance and to designate a monitor for each event. There's further guidance for beach use, with specific reference to beach weddings.
Great news for future visitors as we approach the autumn and look on to winter 2021; but I'd really applaud the great leadership shown by local authorities in Broward, delivering clear and specific guidance where so many tourism hot spots leave excessive room for interpretation or confusing instruction to those people who'd love to spend their vacation time in a destination.
