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
The COVID-19 vaccine remains the single best tool to protect ourselves, our loved ones, and our entire community from serious illness, hospitalization, or worse. Since the first doses of the vaccine arrived in our community, Miami-Dade County has led the State of the Florida in our vaccination efforts and exceeded the national average.
But as we begin to turn the page on this pandemic and provide long-lasting protection to our community, we urge all residents and visitors to stay up to date and get boosted.
Under this plan, we will continue to make it as easy and accessible as possible for all residents and visitors to get the shot.
The science is clear: Three doses of the vaccine are enough to protect most people from serious illness and death for a long time.
E - Education
Miami-Dade County will continue to work closely with the Miami-Dade Public School system to protect our children’s education so that students, teachers, and staff can remain safe in classrooms and access the vaccine, as eligibility expands.
S - Stay home if sick
It's as simple as this – if you're experiencing COVID symptoms, stay home. This is the best way to help stop the spread and to protect our community.
Miami-Dade County calls on all businesses –small and big – to support employees staying home if they are sick or experiencing COVID-19 symptoms.
T - Test when symptomatic
We’ll continue to make testing convenient and accessible for all our residents and visitors, including monitoring viral levels in our wastewater and sequencing test samples to identify new variants in order to stay ahead of the curve.
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.
