City of North Miami Beach Phase 1 Plan of Reopening


The City of North Miami Beach will abide by the measures in Miami-Dade County’s plan to gradually reopen our community, while keeping the City’s Emergency Orders in place.

Effective May 18:
• Restaurants, retail stores, barbers, hair and nail salons in the City will be allowed to reopen at half of their normal capacity, and must follow specific health and safety measures required for each type of business.
• Employees and customers of these establishments must wear face coverings, and social distancing is required.
• Bars, movie theaters, event venues, gyms, and community pools and hot tubs must remain closed until a later phase of reopening.

The City is keeping the following measures in place while monitoring and evaluating the success of this first phase:
• The city curfew will remain in effect from 9 p.m. until 6 a.m. nightly until further notice.
• The Emergency Order restricting short-term vacation rentals will remain in effect. Rental operators can only accept reservations for guests verified as essential lodgers

Emergency Order No. 5 - Recommending Face Covering      

Consistent with CDC guidelines and in furtherance of County orders, except as otherwise required herein, all persons are encouraged to wear a cloth mask or face covering when moving about the City for essential services, whether employee or patron and/or engaging in essential activities. Persons should not utilize N95 rated masks, as those exceed the standards for coverings provided by the CDC and are in critical short supply for health care workers, first responders, emergency management, and other persons engaged in life/safety activities. Face coverings may include, without limitation, scarfs, neck gaiters, bandanas, handkerchiefs, or other similar cloth coverings, whether store-bought or homemade. Persons looking for additional guidance for protective face coverings should review the CDC and Florida Department of Health guidelines on personal protective equipment. Individuals engaged in permitted outdoor activities may forego this recommendation, provided that all other social distancing measures and State, County and/or State orders are followed. The City Manager has issued the following additional emergency orders: Emergency Order No. 5 – Recommending Face Covering
