Broward County now under nightly curfew

Beginning Friday at 11 p.m., a curfew will be in place from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. daily in Broward.

The curfew is in place from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. daily.

The new restrictions come under an emergency order issued Friday afternoon by County Administrator Bertha Henry.

Broward County Mayor Dale Holness said the curfew lasts through Aug. 1, giving the county time to gauge if it helps reduce the spread of the virus. If necessary, Holness said the curfew could be extended if the numbers don’t improve.

Broward now joins Miami-Dade County in having a curfew. Palm Beach County doesn’t have one, though it’s requiring all restaurants to close at 11 p.m., and it’s possible the county could enact tighter restrictions if conditions worsen.
