Miami Dade County "New Normal Guidelines"

Miami-Dade County Reopens Businesses and Recreational Amenities under "New Normal" Guidelines



Miami-Dade County has allowed most businesses to reopen in cities and unincorporated areas of the county, including Palmetto Bay.  Most business types may operate provided they follow the guidelines established in the county's  "Moving to a New Normal" plan.

To assist businesses with the implementation of the new restrictions, Miami-Dade County issued its "Initial Reopening Plan" detailing the rules under which businesses may operate.  A link to the plan is provided below:

To further assist our own businesses locally, Palmetto Bay contacted commercial owners to provide the county plan along with information detailing the specific protocols that apply to their business type.  That information is included below:
