Business Update for those Facing the Impact of COVID-19
Tuesday, July 28, 2020
It should go without saying that Miami Beach residents and visitors need to be wearing a mask when in public, and as COVID-19 cases continue to rise across South Florida — city officials are done issuing warnings.

Miami Beach Police and Code Officers are giving out $50 civil citations for anyone not wearing a facial covering while in a public place or space.

We urge everyone to also continue practicing social distancing and meticulously  wash your hands regularly.  The Countywide curfew for the remainder of the city, excluding the 8 p.m. curfew for the South Beach Entertainment District, remains in effect from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. daily.
COVID-19 Business Impact Survey
The city's Economic Development Department is evaluating the financial impact caused by the COVID-19 pandemic on our local businesses. The Business Impact Survey will help capture the impact on key issues, such as business operations, financial performance, employees and supply chains.
Results from the survey will be used by the city to evaluate opportunities for assistance.
