Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Thanks to the enormous sacrifices our community has made over the last two years, Miami-Dade is ready to look forward to a new phase of this pandemic. 
 
In consultation with our Chief Medical Officer, masks are no longer required at Miami-Dade County facilities, and all remaining requirements affecting our hospital systems and county employees have been lifted.
 
Mayor Daniella Levine Cava also announced a new forward-looking, proactive plan to guide our response to this evolving pandemic while continuing to recover and rebuild our economy. 
 
Our BEST Plan focuses on lessons learned from the past two years, continued readiness, and our commitment to keep all residents and visitors safe now and in the future from COVID-19. 

B – Booster Shots
E – Education   
S – Stay home if sick 
T – Test when symptomatic 

Over the past two years, we have learned so much about this virus and about how to stay safe. It’s time to take that knowledge - rooted in science and data – and use it to be even more proactive and adaptive against this evolving pandemic. 
 
Miami-Dade County’s local COVID-19 emergency order will remain in place. This order ensures that we have the necessary resources to fund and keep open our vaccination and testing sites. 
 
Our BEST Plan is consistent with the updated recommendations from the CDC and with the Biden Administration’s National COVID-19 Preparedness Plan
