This is a unique summer as many of our businesses are re-opening or operating based on fast changing County and City of Hollywood rules for operating a business in the COVID-19 era. The HBBA has posted updates on social media and our website HBBAFLA.com as they become available. Regulations and changes to code are passed by the government with only a few days’ notice. Businesses have to react and implement even faster or face warnings, fines and even closure. When the city closed beaches for the 4th of July our customers thought our businesses were closed. We support efforts to keep people safe and are working with the government to ensure that the right messaging gets out as far as our business community. There are some very useful links on our website to get required signs that you can print out for free, as well as resources businesses can use for re-opening. The Broadwalk has been open and so are the beaches for the rest of the summer for your walking, biking, shopping, dining and sunbathing pleasure.
Our businesses are now required by the government to enforce mask regulations. This will allow people to go out and get some fresh air, a bite to eat or just to see the ocean. A business could be closed down and the livelihood of the employees and owners will be affected if inspectors see no compliance so we ask our friends, neighbors and visitors to understand this and to comply. Please help them out as we want you to enjoy all the good things here on Hollywood Beach.
