Brevard County To Re-Open Government Facilities to Public May 18th

BREVARD COUNTY, FL. -- Brevard County government facilities will re-open to the public on Monday, May 18. In an abundance of caution, limited access and appointment-only services will be in place in many departments until further notice as the County implements a safety-conscious approach to ensure that proper safety measures and Centers for Disease Control social distancing guidelines are observed.

County government facilities closed to the public March 20, but day-to-day operations and services have continued. During the initial re-opening on Monday, citizens are encouraged to continue utilizing the County's online service options and to contact departments by telephone or email to schedule an appointment. However, all County facilities will be open for public access.

The County has installed new protective measures such as Plexiglas sneeze guards in areas visited regularly by the public, and implemented enhanced facility cleaning and disinfectant protocols put in place during the COVID-19 response to include regular sanitizing of frequently touched surfaces, such as door handles, stair railings and counter tops, in all County government facilities.

Those who visit without an appointment may be asked to schedule an appointment or to wait outside in their vehicles until County staff is available to assist them. These processes are intended to help reasonably reduce potential exposure to COVID-19 by the public and by County employees while also providing County government services.

  • helps obtain necessary supplies quickly: procurement policy may be waived to allow for timely access to personal protective equipment for first responders and sanitation supplies for critical public buildings (e.g., courthouses, the jail, the emergency operations center, etc.)

The Business Damage Assessment Survey can be taken online at https://floridadisaster.biz/

Tallahassee, Fla. ­ Today, Governor Ron DeSantis announced the activation of the Business Damage Assessment survey to assess the impact of COVID-19 on Florida's local business operations. The survey, managed by the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO), will evaluate businesses affected by COVID-19 and the impacts the virus has had on the local economy so actions to implement appropriate relief programs can begin.

"Gathering information about the impact COVID-19 has on Florida businesses and industries will be invaluable to the state's efforts in coordinating our response," said Governor DeSantis. "It is important that we understand the total impact COVID-19 has on businesses to ensure that we access the resources that may be available."

"Under Governor DeSantis' direction, the state of Florida has maintained contact with our business partners throughout the state in order to develop a proactive response for COVID-19 business impacts," said Florida DEO Executive Director Ken Lawson. "We need feedback from all Florida businesses to provide comprehensive information about the impacts of COVID-19 to our partners at the federal level."

Governor Ron DeSantis issued Executive Order 20-52 declaring a State of Emergency for COVID-19 and directed the Florida Division of Emergency Management to activate the Florida Emergency Operations Center (EOC) to a Level II, to coordinate the state's response to COVID-19. Last week, the governor issued Executive Order 20-51 directing the State Surgeon General to declare a public health emergency.

    All playgrounds are closed

    North Brevard County Parks are open, but no pavilion reservations. Park pavilions are first come, first serve. Observe 6' spacing. Community Centers are closed. Any questions, please call 321-264-5037.
