CORONAVIRUS INFORMATION AND RESOURCES
As Florida continues to monitor the coronavirus (COVID-19) within our state, it is important to remain calm, vigilant and informed about the virus.
On Tuesday, March 24th Mayor Demings signed an executive order requiring all residents to STAY AT HOME. The order also requires all non-essential retail and commercial businesses to close as an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19. The order takes effect Thursday, March 26 at 11 p.m. and ends on Thursday, April 9 at 11 p.m.
This order applies to every resident in Orange County, including Edgewood residents, unless you work for an essential business or are doing essential activities. Such activities include but are not limited to, travel to and from grocery stores, pharmacies, gas stations, police stations, fire stations, hospitals, COVID-19 testing sites, and healthcare facilities. You are encouraged to practice social distancing when outdoors. Restaurants can continue to provide take-out and delivery services. For more information on enforcement, allowable activities, and essential and non-essential business, please refer to the executive order:
Waste Management Garbage Pickup is considered essential and will continue normal operations. However, WM has been experiencing heavy volumes in residential collection services and there may be some short delays in yard waste and bulk collection in the coming weeks. We ask for your continuing patience as we navigate through this challenge.
Florida League of Cities has provided links for resources to assist in controlling the spread of the coronavirus and educating the public on prevention tips. We will continue to update this page as new information develops.
