CORAL SPRINGS, FL – Broward County announced this week that it is now lifting most Covid-19 capacity restrictions and sanitation requirements for outdoor activities.

The announcement -- which didn’t include details on the kinds of activities -- came as more Broward County residents have been vaccinated.

As of Sunday, 453,269 people in Broward County have been fully vaccinated and an additional 280,657 people have received at least their first dose, according to the county news release on the announcement.

Despite the relaxing of outdoor restrictions, social distancing and facial covering requirements will remain in place “for the foreseeable future,” the release said.

"As summer approaches and outdoor restrictions are relaxed, we encourage all eligible Broward residents to get vaccinated, and enjoy the many outdoor activities the county has to offer," Broward Mayor Steve Geller said in the release.
