In Broward County, FL, Masks in Homes Remains Unclear from Confusing Emergency Order


Broward County Emergency Order 20-22, which imposes a curfew from 11 pm to 5 am, is under fire for a questionably worded section.

Section 4 A appears to suggest that residents must wear masks inside of their own homes. 

The order specifically mentions both single family or multi-family homes.

However, local news reports that masks are not required for those living in their home.

Rather, it appears that the intention of the order was to mandate that visitors inside your home must wear a mask.

Order 20-22 states:

All persons who reside on any residential property, whether single family or multi-family, and irrespective of whether they own or rent the property, must ensure that all persons on the residential property, including guests, comply with all applicable guidelines of any Broward County Emergency Order, including the facial covering requirements.

It’s no wonder people are confused!
