Broward County will allow restaurants to stay open an hour later each night, relaxing restrictions put into effect during the new coronavirus pandemic.
In a letter to Broward’s mayors late Thursday afternoon, Monica Cepero, the deputy county administrator, said the county will authorize a new emergency order either late Thursday or sometime Friday.
It will be effective Friday.
Currently, the rules in Broward for restaurants required they shut down for on-site dining from 10 p.m. until 5 a.m. Restaurants can continue to operate for takeout, drive-thru and delivery services.
