CITY OF DANIA BEACH CONDO ADVISORY

We all need to do our part by practicing “social distancing,” which means we all need to keep 6 feet apart from anyone else, including when walking outside, by or in the pool, and at any indoor/outdoor gatherings. Please practice all measures as recommend by The Center of Disease Control (www.cdc.gov) in order to prevent the spread of Coronavirus.  It is recommended to stay inside and order food in, if necessary. Limit outdoor activities and if outdoors, remember to practice social distancing.
