Broward County prepares for a safe transition into Phase 3

Governor Ron DeSantis’ announcement that the state of Florida was ready to move into Phase 3 caused a lot of confusion in Broward County. Per the announcement, each county and municipality is handling the phased reopening process according to their cases and Broward County has not yet entered Phase 3, Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance President & CEO Bob Swindell told Invest: Insights. Allowing hotels to safely open in the appropriate occupancy levels is important and the messaging was challenging. Allowing the Greater Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show is a major win for the county as it is a major economic engine for the region, and allows Broward County to position itself as a model for cities as they reopen and host events safely.
