Message from Miami-Dade Commissioner Sally Heyman

I hope you and your families are staying healthy and safe as we ALL continue to adjust to COVID-19, its fluid nature and the changing news about this pandemic virus spreading.

My Commission Staff and I have been closely following news and updates at all levels of government, organizations and services. The rapidly changing environment requires ALL of US to be responsive in adhering to warnings, instructions, restrictions and advisories to get through this difficult time.

My Office has been operating remotely without interruption or delays, and will continue the same level of service that we have always delivered. We are taking all precautions suggested by CDC, WHO, and other public health experts to mitigate any further spread of the coronavirus working in isolated remote locales.

My Office has been and will continue to hold twice daily virtual meetings to share information: scheduling FaceTime, Skype, and virtual phone meetings on request: using our iCloud-based system to maintain records for our remote work, monitoring our office emails and have seven (7) day a week office phone line transfer to always take your calls.

We are here for you, our community and constituents through this difficult time. If you need assistance, have concerns or questions, reach out to us. Working together we will get through this and move forward to better days.

Sally
