City of Fort Lauderdale Update on Coronavirus

April 3, 2020

Following is an update from the City of Fort Lauderdale on the coronavirus (COVID-19).

CDC Recommends People Wear Cloth Masks in Certain Public Areas

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is now recommending that people should wear cloth face masks in public areas where social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., in grocery stores and pharmacies) and where significant community-based transmission of the coronavirus is occurring. The CDC is basing its recommendation on results from recent studies that show the coronavirus can be spread between people interacting in close proximity to one another even if those people are not exhibiting symptoms. To view the CDC’s complete recommendation on face coverings, please visit https://bit.ly/cdconmasks.

COVID-19: Business Assistance Programs

SBA Economic Injury Loan
The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) is working directly with state Governors to provide targeted, low-interest loans to small businesses and non-profits that have been severely impacted by the coronavirus (COVID-19). The SBA’s Economic Injury Disaster Loan program offers working capital loans of up to $2 million that can provide vital economic support to small businesses to help overcome the temporary loss of revenue they are experiencing. For details, visit bit.ly/2U3rdVT.

How does COVID-19 spread?

COVID-19 can spread from person to person through small droplets from the nose or mouth, including when an individual coughs or sneezes. These droplets may land on objects and surfaces. Other people may contract coronavirus by touching these objects or surfaces, then touching their eyes, nose or mouth.
