Miami-Dade County is targeting a June
1 reopening for hotels and beaches.
Miami began allowing retail, restaurant, office and personal
grooming venues to operate in late May as part of the first tranche of its
phased reopening plan.
The City of Miami Beach has released a draft of mandatory
requirements for hotels,
with properties required to roll out services in line with the county’s phased
reopening approach. Hotel restaurant, retail, office space and personal
grooming amenities are permitted to reopen, so long as they comply with all
state, county and local requirements. Hotel swimming pools, hot tubs, bars,
banquet halls, fitness studios, gyms and recreational areas for children will
initially remain closed.
The document also outlines detailed social distancing,
enhanced cleaning and facial covering and other personal protective equipment
requirements for both hotel employees and guests.
Concurrently, Miami-Dade County has released guidelines for
beach reopenings, putting a limit on any beach gatherings larger than 10
people. Additionally, people not from the same household must remain six feet
apart. If social distancing is not possible, face coverings must be worn.
Permitted beach activities will include walking, jogging,
swimming, surfing, paddle boarding and kayaking, sunbathing on individually
owned chairs or towels and eating with members of same household. Group
activities or athletics will not be allowed.
