The Hollywood Beach Broadwalk is expected to reopen for the first time since it was closed due to the coronavirus outbreak.
A plan is in the works to reopen the Broadwalk on Wednesday, May 13. It would be open for limited hours, from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. daily.
All Broward County beaches remain closed for the time being.
"The sandy beach itself remains closed until the tri-county area opens that all at once. You can’t open one beach alone, it has to be all at once and whenever health officials say we're ready for that,” Hollywood Mayor Josh Levy said.
Restaurants along the 2.5-mile stretch will remain open for takeout and delivery, but customers won’t be allowed to sit down and eat along the broadwalk vicinity.
“You gotta keep your social distances as you can expect right now. No groups of larger than 10. Facial coverings are recommended, not fully required because some folks have trouble breathing wearing a mask, especially when they’re exercising and exerting themselves,” said Levy.
Officers with Hollywood Beach Patrol and park rangers will be out enforcing social distancing measures.
Hollywood reopened a number of city parks on Wednesday for passive activities including walking, biking and running. Park hours are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
The parks now open include ArtsPark at Young Circle, Charles Vollman Park, Jefferson Park, Joe DiMaggio Park, John Williams Park, Oakridge Park and Zinkil Park.
Also opened on Wednesday were the boat ramps at Hollywood Marina and Holland Park, as well as golf courses including Hollywood Beach Golf Club, Eco Golf Club and Orangebrook Golf Club, with certain restrictions.
