Latest Updates
The City of Miami Beach continues to provide our residents and businesses with the latest updates from the City of Miami Beach during this pandemic. As the State of Florida has seen a steady increase in cases, we urge you to remember to wear a mask, practice social distancing and wash your hands regularly.

As South Florida continues to experience rising numbers of COVID-19 cases, the City of Miami Beach has extended its State of Emergency  and updated its Emergency Measures to include the following amendments effective, July 2 at 12:01 a.m.:

  • The establishment of a citywide curfew from 12:30 a.m. to 5 a.m., with exceptions including fire, police, and hospital personnel, including the transportation of patients thereto, utility emergency repairs, emergency calls by physicians, essential travel for medical services, treatment, or medication, and food delivery services.
  • All retail stores, including package liquor stores, grocery stores, convenience stores, and gasoline service/filling stations, which offer for sale any alcoholic beverage(s), (including, but not limited to, liquor, beer, or wine) for off-premises consumption SHALL BE PROHIBITED from selling any alcoholic beverage(s) after 8 p.m each day in ALL ZONING DISTRICTS.
  • All restaurants must close for dine-in and take-out between the hours of 12:01 a.m. and 6 a.m. Only delivery services are permitted between these hours.
Additionally, Miami-Dade County Order 25-20, requires that hotels must close their pools between the hours of 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. starting Friday, July 3 through Monday, July 6. Click here to read the County’s full order.

County Mayor Carlos Gimenez all will close all of the beaches in Miami-Dade County starting Friday, July 3, and ending Tuesday, July 7. The closure may be extended if conditions do not improve and people do not follow "New Normal" rules requiring masks to be worn always inside commercial establishments and outdoors when social distancing of at least 6 feet is not possible.

The city is safely welcoming back residents and visitors to a myriad of locales that had previously closed their doors in our collective effort to contain the spread of COVID-19. Visit www.miamibeachfl.gov/reopening which delineates mandatory guidelines by industry. The site is currently populated with Phase 1 and Phase 2 guidelines and subsequent guidelines will be coming soon.

Additionally, Ocean Drive is closed to vehicular traffic to allow restaurants in Phase 1B to extend their footprint — allowing for additional capacity. It also offers an opportunity for residents and visitors to walk or cycle this iconic street. The city is exploring other options to allow for more outdoor capacity.

Face Coverings
Effective as of 9 a.m. on July 2, 2020, Miami-Dade County Emergency Order 20-20 is amended to state that all persons throughout Miami-Dade County shall wear a mask or other facial covering when in public. Masks and other facial coverings shall not be required: at or inside a private residence; inside a private automobile; at or inside any religious institution, without limitation; inside a hotel, motel, or commercial lodging establishment guest room, or inside any apartment; of children under the age of two years; of persons who cannot wear a mask or facial covering due to an existing medical condition; of an individual who is hearing impaired or an individual who is communicating with an individual who is hearing impaired; where federal or state safety or health regulations prohibit the wearing of facial coverings; of persons actively engaged in strenuous physical activity, either inside or outdoors; of persons swimming or engaged in other activities which may cause the facial covering to become wet; while persons are actively eating, drinking, or smoking; and while a person is receiving services which require access to that person’s nose or mouth.

Coverings may include a face mask, homemade mask or other cloth covering, such as a scarf, bandana or handkerchief, and should complement — not substitute for — social distancing practices. Medical and surgical face masks, such as “N95” masks, are in short supply and should be reserved for health care personnel and other first responders with the greatest need for such personal protective equipment.  Not sure how to make your own?

Any violation of the aforementioned emergency measures would subject the individual or business entity to criminal penalties.
