MIAMI -This week, Miami-Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava issued new, streamlined required COVID safety protocols, as well as a new handbook of COVID Safety Guidelines outlining recommendations to keep residents, businesses, and visitors safe. The Mayor also signed an amendment to Emergency Order 27-20 to lift the Countywide curfew starting Monday, April 12, 2021 at 12:01 am.
Emergency Order 33-20 – the County's new, overarching order for residents, visitors, and commercial establishments – contains mandates that all people and businesses in Miami-Dade County are legally required to follow, including masking, social distancing, sanitizing, and staying home when sick. The COVID Safety Guidelines provide specific additional recommendations to prevent the spread of the virus and protect residents and visitors.
"We've made great progress towards ending this pandemic as vaccination has accelerated," said Mayor Levine Cava. "These new guidelines will allow businesses and residents to continue getting back to normal while emphasizing the key actions we must follow to keep ourselves and others safe until we have widespread community immunity. Now that all adults are eligible, I urge our community: Make a plan and get vaccinated! It's our single best tool to put the pandemic behind us."
