Curfew planned for Christmas, New Year’s Eve in Broward County



Broward County, Florida – As the number of new Covid-19 cases continues rising, Broward County Mayor Steven Geller announced Tuesday that nightly curfews are coming for the holidays.

Curfews will be from 1 a.m. to 5 a.m. on Christmas and New Year’s Eve and midnight to 5 a.m. on all other days through Jan. 4 for all municipalities including Coral Springs.

The reason: many people are planning holiday get-togethers despite the surge in new cases, Geller said.

There were also eight new deaths reported in Broward County since Monday, bringing the total number of deaths in the county to 1,792.
