Brevard County Government Announces COVID-19-related Event Cancellations

BREVARD COUNTY, FL. – In an abundance of caution, and in accordance with direction from Gov. Ron DeSantis, Brevard County Government on Friday put the following measures in place effective immediately related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

On Thursday, DeSantis advised cities and counties to postpone or cancel any mass gatherings over the next 30 days in an effort to limit the spread of the virus throughout the state.
