Input requested based on new CDC guidance 

Dear friends of the Research Park at FAU,

With the recently updated guidelines from the CDC, we’re considering a return to a live, in-person celebration.

Florida Department of Health data shows:

  • the state’s positivity rate has been below 5% for at least 7 days
  • Palm Beach County new cases number fewer than 300 per day so far in May
  • Broward County new cases number fewer than 500 per day so far in May
  • 676,396 people in Broward County have been fully vaccinated, representing approximately 35% of the County's population.
  • 539,666 people in Palm Beach County have been fully vaccinated, representing approximately 36% of the County's population. 

If the positivity rate stays at or below 5%, new cases continue at this lower level and vaccinations continue to increase, I think we can safely hold an indoor/outdoor in-person event in September. Many people have expressed a desire to get back together and to celebrate our entrepreneurs’ work, and meet our new innovators.

What do you, our stakeholders think? Please take a moment to give us your input.
