Dear Miami-Dade County family,
We have made enormous progress in our fight to get the Delta variant under control in Miami-Dade, and I’m extremely proud of everyone across our community who stepped up to help stop the spread.
We also know this global pandemic is not over and that we must remain vigilant –– we have come too far, and have made too much progress, to let our guard down now. The single best thing any of us can do to protect ourselves, our loved ones, and our entire community is to get vaccinated, and if you are eligible, to get the booster shot as soon as possible.
I am so proud that our vaccination rate is the highest in the state and over the national average, and that every day more people continue to receive their first shot across Miami-Dade.
We must all continue to practice common sense. I encourage all our residents to take the steps that we know work to prevent the spread: wear masks around large crowds and people you don’t know to be vaccinated, frequently wash your hands and sanitize, and get tested if you’ve been exposed or show any symptoms.
After closely reviewing the latest COVID trends in Miami-Dade, and in consultation with our Chief Medical Officer Dr. Peter Paige, I am updating our COVID policy: we will no longer require the use of a mask in Miami-Dade County buildings. Masks are still required at the Airport, Port, and on all public transportation per federal guidelines.
I could not be prouder to serve as your Mayor and to work alongside you every day to protect lives and livelihoods. We all must do our part to control the spread and to keep our loved ones safe and our community moving forward.
With gratitude and hope,
From the Mayor
