COVID-19 Coronavirus

Coronavirus (COVID-19) is an emerging disease and there is more to learn about its transmissibility and severity, but the virus is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person. Those with cardiopulmonary disease, weakened immune systems, infants, and older adults have an increased risk. Symptoms may include fever, cough and shortness of breath which can progress to bronchitis or pneumonia. For information, situation updates and the latest news on COVID-19, visit the Florida Department of Health and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Miami Shores Village is coordinating with all our community partners while closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation for our area. Our Village staff is continuously assessing and adapting emergency plans for COVID-19 based on information provided from the Florida Department of Health. Miami Shores Village is following all Emergency Orders of Miami-Dade County, the State of Florida and Federal Guidelines in order to protect the health of our residents.

The Village continues to review processes, policies and procedures to reflect all current recommendations and best practices.

It's important that we all get back to the basic proven COVID precautions we know work:

      • Get vaccinated as soon as possible
      • Wear a mask in public indoor settings. We also strongly encourage you to wear a mask in all public settings including outdoors – especially when in large crowds and around people you don’t know to be vaccinated
      • Practice social distancing in public and socialize outdoors wherever possible
      • Wash your hands frequently
      • Stay home if you’re sick, and if you have been exposed or experience COVID symptoms – even if you’re vaccinated – get tested.
