As our community reopens, it’s important to remember that the pandemic is not over, and that we must each continue to do our part to slow the spread of COVID-19. You must stay vigilant to keep yourself and others safe and so we do not have increased spread or a spike in COVID-19 cases. Unfortunately, there are still new cases of COVID-19 in Broward County and across Florida every day, so please practice social responsibility and stay home if you can. As you support Sunrise businesses, remember to: 

  • Stay at least 6 feet from other people and do not gather in groups.
  • Always wear a face covering in public, in accordance with Broward County Emergency Order 20-20.
  • Follow CDC recommendations regarding handwashing and avoid touching your face. 

We appreciate your cooperation as Sunrise navigates this new chapter. #SunriseCares about the health and safety of our residents and employees, as well as the members of our business community. Working together, we can lessen the effects of COVID-19.
