SUNRISE CARES

The City of Sunrise has been given a huge task to tackle with COVID-19 and making very hard and difficult decisions -- My colleagues and I have not taken those decisions lightly. Every step, every minute, every decision impacts the community - our residents and businesses are being asked to make life changes in an effort to stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

How can you help?
Stay home and only go out when necessary!
Wear facial coverings when out!
Don't over shop!
Support your Local businesses!

I want you to know that your city is here for you and we are doing everything we can to help protect our community.

We will get through this.

EXECUTIVE ORDERS
FACIAL COVERINGS

The City of Sunrise issued a Declaration of Emergency Regulations strongly urging the use of cloth facial coverings while in public.


The purposes of this order, "cloth face coverings" shall not include surgical masks or N95 respirator masks -- I URGE you to reserve surgical masks and N95 respirator masks for healthcare workers and other first responders, as recommended by the CDC.

Please refer to the CDC's recommendation for home made facial coverings along with the proper use of facial masks

SPECIAL BIRTHDAYS FOR
SUNRISE CHILDREN

Many residents have been emailing and calling me regarding their child's birthday. Many of our youngest residents have had their birthday parties canceled due to COVID-19, but here in the City of Sunrise we want them to have a memorable birthday.

If you want to make it a special moment that involves the City of Sunrise Police Department and/or Fire-Rescue Department please call
Police 954-746-3411 or
Fire-Rescue 954-746-3446 .

Please note we are all practicing Social Distancing
and we will adhere to such.














Stay Home! Be safe!
