Keeping You Safe In Downtown Delray Beach | Downtown Delray Beach

The health and safety of our visitors and locals are of the utmost importance to our Downtown.  The City of Delray Beach is doing everything possible to make certain that Downtown Delray is safe and sanitary. The City has collaborated with businesses to put in place clean and safe initiatives to create a considerate environment. The Delray Beach community has implemented a broad range of safety precautions:

- Social Distancing guidance has been implemented throughout the city with reminder signs and place markers of where to stand on sidewalks and crosswalks
- Curbside pickup zones are located around downtown, for easy 15 min parking for take-out orders
- the Clean and Safe team regularly cleans high touch areas
- Code enforcement checks in on businesses to make sure they are following safety protocol defined by Phase 1 of Reopening (social distancing inside establishments, clean environment, directing customers of safe practices)
- Most businesses request visitors wear a mask and most employees are required to wear masks by their place of business
-Many businesses have expanded their operations outdoors and encourage customers to join them for outside dining and shopping when possible
