Pandemic and Infectious Diseases

Because Miami Beach is an international destination, our city and local health officials have incorporated preparation and response activity for health threats such as disease outbreak.

  • The best way to prepare for this and for any other public emergency is to have a plan as you would for any threat. A plan, a kit and strategy for obtaining information will help public safety and health professionals to best help you.
  • Practice good health habits, including eating a balanced diet, exercising daily and getting sufficient rest. Take these common-sense steps to stop the spread of germs:
    • Wash hands frequently with soap and water.
    • Cover coughs and sneezes with tissues.
    • Stay away from others as much as possible if you are sick.
