The Acting City Manager has extended the City’s State of Emergency Declaration and Emergency Measures through April 21, 2021.

The Emergency Order removes the ambient level volume restriction applicable to music and live entertainment throughout the City. However, Miami-Dade County and City of Miami Beach noise ordinances remain in effect and will continue to be enforced by the Miami Beach Code Compliance and Police departments.

We continue to provide our residents and businesses with the latest updates from the City of Miami Beach during the COVID-19 pandemic. Read the latest news and updates below.
