Coronavirus (COVID-19) Travel Advisory
The health and safety of our residents and visitors is a priority and the GMCVB is working closely with health and government officials for access to the most accurate and timely information in regards to COVID-19. The World Health Organization has declared a global pandemic and Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez announced a state of emergency for the Greater Miami area, a move which will facilitate access to more resources for response efforts. In addition, the City of Miami Beach has enacted new measures to curtail large crowds and encourage social distancing. Starting March 16th, non-essential businesses citywide will be required to close daily by 10 p.m. until further notice, and the city is urging restaurants, bars and nightclubs to decrease their capacity by 50 percent to create social distancing. Additionally, there will be a complete closure of the beaches from Fifth to 15 streets until further notice. An 11 p.m. to 5 a.m. curfew will also be enforced in the city’s entertainment district starting Monday, March 16. City-owned parking garages and surface lots citywide will only be open to residents with proof of residency and access card holders.
