Latest on COVID-19: Miami Rules & Regulations

Updated: May 1


To ensure the safety and health of Miami Beach residents and businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic remains the city’s most important objective. As such, the City Manager has extended his State of Emergency Declaration through April 23, 2020. The city has also extended its “Safer at Home” Emergency Order, as well as its Emergency Measures, through April 23, 2020. 


The city’s amended emergency order requires employees and customers of ALL essential retail and commercial businesses to wear a form of covering over their nose and mouth at all times. All individuals providing delivery services to the public must wear a form of covering over their nose and mouth while making deliveries.


Additionally, restaurants located on Lincoln Road (between Alton Road and Washington Avenue) must close their entrances fronting Lincoln Road to the public, and may only conduct delivery, pick-up or take-out services through their rear or side-facing entrances.


According The City of Miami Beach, any violation of the emergency measures mentioned above would subject the individual or business entity to criminal penalties.
