North Miami Mayor Issues Statement on Emergency Order Relating to Reopening of Retail and Commercial Establishments and Facilities.


September 29, 2020

Philippe Bien-Aime, Mayor of North Miami, issued the following statement in reference to the City’s latest Emergency Order: 

“For most of 2020, the City of North Miami, has taken measures to follow COVID-19 safety recommendations made by the CDC. In response to the decision by our Governor, Ron DeSantis, to move Florida into Phase III of the State’s recovery plan, the City of North Miami issued Emergency Order 2020-008. 

Effective Tuesday, September 29, 2020, North Miami Emergency Order 2020-008, authorizes every retail and commercial establishment and any other establishment or facility in the City, to open and remain open, provided that each establishment complies with the safety requirements detailed in the emergency order. The listed safety requirements focus primarily on occupancy capacity, use of facial coverings or masks, social distancing and more. Additional requirements are listed in Miami Dade County’s “Moving To A New Normal Handbook.” 

As we transition into Phase III of Florida’s recovery plan, our access is restored to many facilities and establishments, and therefore, the leisurely activities enjoyed before the onset of COVID-19. It is still imperative that we keep the safety of the community at-large in mind as we go about our daily routines. Since March, we have become accustomed to use of masks, social distancing, thorough handwashing, and careful sanitation of surfaces. Strides have been made in the nation’s efforts to reduce the spread of COVID-19. It is important that these efforts remain ongoing. We must all continue doing our part. 

With the safety of our community in mind, we must adhere to the guidelines from the CDC and Florida Department of Health as it relates to social distancing and sanitization to prevent the spread of COVID-19. 

The latest City of North Miami Emergency Order adheres to Miami-Dade County’s latest executive order and detailed handbook. For North Miami updates and resources, please visit us online at www.NorthMiamiFL.gov/coronavirus.”
