As the coronavirus continues to claim lives across the State of Florida, the City of Miami Beach has added a requirement in
today’s Emergency Order
, effective April 7, 2020, for all employees and customers of grocery stores, pharmacies and restaurant facilities to wear a form of covering over their nose and mouth at all times when inside these establishments. The same requirement applies to individuals providing delivery services.
Acceptable coverings may include a
, homemade mask or other cloth covering, such as a scarf, bandana or handkerchief, and should complement — not substitute for — social distancing practices. Medical and surgical face masks, such as “N95” masks, are in short supply and should be reserved for
personnel and other first responders with the greatest need for such personal protective equipment.
As to all
essential retail and commercial establishments permitted to remain open, employees and customers are strongly encouraged to wear a form of covering over their nose and mouth. All establishments are strongly encouraged to implement policies for employees to use other personal protective equipment, such as gloves, subject to the availability of such items.
