Latest Updates
As the coronavirus continues to claim lives across the State of Florida, the City of Miami Beach has added a requirement in the latest Emergency Order, effective April 7, 2020, for all employees and customers of grocery stores, pharmacies and restaurant facilities to wear a form of covering over their nose and mouth at all times when inside these establishments. The same requirement applies to individuals providing delivery services.

Acceptable 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.

As to all  other  essential retail and commercial establishments permitted to remain open, employees and customers are strongly encouraged to wear a form of covering over their nose and mouth. All establishments are strongly encouraged to implement policies for employees to use other personal protective equipment, such as gloves, subject to the availability of such items.

The city has also revised its  “Safer at Home” Emergency Order through April 9, 2020.

Additionally, in Executive Order 20-82 and Executive Order 20-86, Governor DeSantis has ordered all persons who enter Florida from an area with substantial community spread, to include the Tri-State Area (NY, NJ and CT) and Louisiana, to isolate or quarantine for a period of 14 days from the time of their arrival in the State. The Governor’s Executive Orders are mandatory, and compliance with these orders is a critical part of the city’s collective efforts to curb the potential spread of COVID-19 in Miami Beach. All persons isolating or quarantining under this Section shall be responsible for all costs associated with their isolation or quarantine, including transportation, lodging, food, medical care and any other expenses incurred during the period of isolation or quarantine.

Failure to follow the Governor’s Executive Orders is a second-degree misdemeanor pursuant to section 252.50, Florida Statutes, and is punishable by imprisonment not to exceed 60 days, a fine not to exceed $500, or both.

If you are aware of a violation of any of the State, County or City Emergency Orders, please contact the city’s non-emergency police number at 305.673.7901
