Weston's "Safer at Home" Order and Broward's Shelter in Place Order in Effect Until Further Notice

 

Weston issued Emergency Order 2020-05 ("Safer at Home" Order) effective at 12:01 a.m. on March 26, 2020. All emergency orders are in effect until the State of Local Emergency is lifted.  Additionally, Emergency Order 2020-07 took effect on April 1, which closes all HOA/Condo common area recreational facilities (the order does not affect the use of private home facilities at a single family residence.)  

Additionally, Broward County has issued Emergency Order 20-03 effective at 12:01 on Friday, March 27, calling for all residents to Shelter in Place and clarifies the classification of essential businesses. The orders are in effect until the State of the Local Emergency has been lifted.
