Latest Updates
The City of Miami Beach is preparing to safely welcome 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.

On Friday, May 29, the City of Miami Beach has amended its Emergency Order — allowing for beaches (UPDATE 5/31 Miami-Dade County has postponed beach reopening), hotels and condominium/apartment building/community pools to reopen on June 1, 2020, consistent with Miami-Dade County Emergency Order 23-20 and subject to a series of rules and social distancing guidelines.

Read the City of Miami Beach’s updated State of Emergency Declaration and Emergency Measures.

The city has launched a website, www.miamibeachfl.gov/reopening, delineating 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 now 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
ALL employees and patrons visiting essential retail and commercial businesses must wear a form of covering over their nose and mouth at all times.

If you are visiting one of our open parks/greenspaces and/or beachwalks/baywalks, you must wear a face covering unless social distancing can be achieved. This does not apply to children under the age of 2 or person's who have trouble breathing due to chronic pre-existing conditions or persons engaged in strenuous physical activity are not required to wear a face covering.

All individuals providing delivery services to the public must wear a form of covering over their nose and mouth while making deliveries.

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? View a how-to guide from the CDC here.

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