Hallandale Beach continues phased Reopening:

Broward County has issued Emergency Order 20-15 Emergency Order 20-14 allowing additional permitted activities on our beach and allowing massage and tattoo parlors to open.  

This new order amends the Broward County Phase One and subsequent Emergency Orders. Hallandale Beach Emergency Order 20-09 details the requirement for commercial gyms to obtain an inspection before opening.

Broward Excluded from State’s Phase 2 Recovery

Per the Governor’s Executive Order, except for the tri-county area, the rest of Florida is moving to Phase 2 of recovery starting on Friday, June 5th. Per the Order, the Broward County Mayor (and Miami/Dade/Palm Beach) can make a written request to the state to enter Phase 2, subject to the State’s approval.

Phase 2 allows for bars and other venues licensed to sell alcohol for on-premises consumption to operate at 50 percent (excluding nightclubs) and for entertainment establishments such as movie theaters, concert houses, auditoriums, playhouses, bowling alleys, and arcades to operate at 50 percent with appropriate social distancing between groups and proper sanitation.  

The Order also provides for the prior virtual meetings order to be in place until June 30, 2020.
