We know there has been some confusion on whether the Executive Order applies to private and public beaches. Last week, the Governor issued Executive Order 20-70 that closed all beaches in Palm Beach and Broward Counties. It does not differentiate between private or public beaches. This means this Executive Order applies to our beaches.
Since the order was issued, much has changed and we now have Executive Orders closing private community pools and private golf courses. Today, the Governor issued Executive Order 20-91, requiring all persons in Florida to limit their movements and personal interactions outside of their home to only those necessary to obtain or provide essential services or conduct essential activities. The order is effective at 12:01 a.m. on April 3, 2020.
Compliance with Executive Orders is critical in keeping people safe and healthy.
Please adhere to this serious Public Health Emergency Order.
