BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey delivered a special message on Monday as Florida’s ‘Phase One’ plan to reopening begins today.
As part of the message, Sheriff Ivey gave the message with Keith Houston from Crest Cleaners that Brevard County businesses are beginning to reopen and a plea for residents to help support local businesses and restaurants during this critical time amid COVID-19.
The Sheriff mentioned that Crest Cleaners will be one of his stops today as he plans to visit more businesses to offer his support.
“Had a chance to stop by a personally thank our great friends at “Hobbs Pharmacy” in Merritt Island for all they have done to help our community during this unique time,” said Sheriff Ivey.
“From increased deliveries of medications to curbside service they have been on the frontline since day one, as have all of our other pharmacies throughout Brevard County!”
Last week, Gov. Ron DeSantis announced that beginning Monday, restaurants and stores will be allowed to reopen at 25 percent capacity — kicking off phase one of the state’s reopening plan.
The order excludes Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties, but the Republican governor said those counties will be able to enter phase one of the reopening plan “soon.”
As a result, the Brevard County Board of County Commissioners and the Policy Group activated part of the COVID-19 pandemic response by having rescinded beachside parking restrictions effective immediately.
County-controlled beachside parks and beachside public parking access areas will be reopened for most beaches.
Municipalities such as Cape Canaveral, Cocoa Beach, Satellite Beach, Melbourne Beach, Indian Harbour Beach, Indialantic, and Melbourne are expected to announce openings of beachside parking access at a later date.
Beachside parking access was closed March 18 in an effort to contain the spread of COVID-19.
