Stay Safe, Keep Others Safe by Wearing a Facial Covering

The CDC recommends and Broward County Emergency Orders require residents and visitors, unless otherwise exempted, to wear a facial covering in public. The facial covering can be constructed of any material, but should utilize CDC guidelines. Please be sure to discard disposable face masks and gloves in garbage containers – these items are not recyclable.
