Background Discussion
  • On April 1, 2020, Governor Ron DeSantis issued Executive Orders 20-91 and 20-92, setting forth essential services and activities during the COVID-19 emergency.
  • On April 3, 2020, to further combat the spread of COVID-19, and to protect the health, safety, and welfare of the citizenry, the Board of County Commissioners adopted Resolution R-20-053, a supplemental resolution of the Board reaffirming a state of local emergency, establishing a curfew, prohibiting social gatherings of ten or more people, providing for enforcement on both public and private properties, and providing for penalties.
  • On April 10, 2020, the Board adopted Resolution R-20-056 reaffirming the State of Local Emergency; amending the local curfew; prohibiting gatherings of ten or more people; providing for enforcement on public property and in public spaces; providing guidelines when dealing with homeless persons; and providing for penalties.
  • At their meeting on April 17, 2020, the Board authorized and directed the Board Chair to extend the curfew set forth in Resolution R-20-056 through Tuesday, April 21, 2020.  The Board subsequently rescinded the curfew at the April 21 meeting and scheduled a meeting for April 28 to receive further updates on the COVID 19 event.
  • An update will be provided on the current status of test kits and testing since the Board approval on April 21 for the expenditure of up to $100,000 for test kits and PPEs (personal protective equipment).
  • The County Administrator will provide a report on efforts to draft re-entry processes throughout the County.
