It is of the utmost importance for residents to understand that the City of Deerfield Beach is in a state of emergency. Current guidelines call for gatherings to be limited to groups of 10 or fewer.

We must defeat COVID-19. Those who are refusing to follow the guidelines are putting many at risk, perhaps your own family and friends. Please be a good neighbor.
