​​​​Broward County Administrator Bertha Henry initially declared a local State of Emergency in regards to COVID-19 on March 10, 2020. A Declaration of Emergency continues for seven days, whereupon it must be renewed to remain in force. Declarations have been renewed every seven days since March 10, 2020. The most recent Declaration is posted here. Please note:

  • Current Federal law requires facial coverings at airports, seaports and on public transit, including Broward County Transit buses.
  • Pursuant to Broward County Administrative policy (amended November 22​, 2021)​, members of the public are strongly encouraged to wear a facial covering while indoors on County property. Certain exceptions apply.​
  • Emergency Directive 21-A implemented on August 5, 2021 requires hospitals to report to the County daily statistics of key indicators including number of available Intensive Care Unit beds and ventilators. The Directive remains in force until terminated by a subsequent Emergency Directive or Order.​

During the pandemic, a series of Emergency Orders​ superseded by a Comprehensive Emergency Order were implemented in Broward County. Pursuant to Governor Ron DeSantis' Executive Order 21-102​, provisions of Broward County Comprehensive Emergency Order were suspended until further notice.
