Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez and coastal communities set target date for reopening of beaches

MIAMI ( May 22, 2020 )

On Friday, May 22, 2020, Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez and his senior staff met virtually with the mayors and city managers of all of Miami-Dade County's coastal municipalities to discuss the reopening of beaches and the expansion of hotel accommodations to guests other than essential lodgers. Mayor Gimenez and the municipal leaders have all agreed to a target date of June 1st.

The city managers will be meeting with County staff and medical experts over the weekend to create the rules that would be necessary for the safe and secure reopening of beaches and the expansion of hotel accommodations. The group will meet with Mayor Gimenez again on Tuesday to go over the proposed plan. We will continue to update the community on the progress of these discussions.
