Brevard County’s Board of County Commissioners adopted a proclamation requesting businesses implement CDC social distancing recommendations
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Businesses in Brevard County are being asked to do their part in helping to slow the spread of COVID-19 by implementing and adhering to social distancing recommendations by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Florida Department of Health.
By a unanimous vote Monday, Brevard County’s Board of County Commissioners adopted a proclamation requesting businesses implement CDC social distancing recommendations by making these standards part of their day-to-day operations:
• All employees and patrons are to practice social distancing by staying at least six feet apart;
• Group meetings, trainings, and other gatherings are to be limited to 10 persons of less;
• Occupancy should be limited to no more than 30 percent of the maximum allowable capacity under the fire code for non-residential, non-medical, and non-lodging uses;
• Business should install appropriate signage, floor markings, or such other means as may be necessary to remind customers and employees of the importance of social distancing at entry and exit points, checkout points, staging areas, etc.
The CDC social distancing recommendations have been credited with “flattening the curve” or keeping the spike of COVID-19 cases at a level that doesn’t overwhelm the health system, and also have helped reduce exposure and the potential for contracting the deadly virus.
The commission’s vote on Monday was prompted by previous action from a policy group of Brevard County leaders who activate during times of emergency, such as the coronavirus pandemic.
