The City’s goal is to keep all residents and visitors to Miramar safe and healthy during this pandemic. The mask slows the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) that may be transmitted at essential businesses. For example, if you are an asymptomatic carrier, you may not think that you have contracted the virus and inadvertently pass it along to a family member, friend, children or seniors.
All reports from federal authorities describe our current situation as a pandemic, so we must treat it the same way. There is no need to panic—let’s work together to slow the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus)!
While the City does not wish to determine your everyday wear (as long as it isn’t considered lewd behavior in public), we have determined that it is in the best interest of our community to wear protective gear to slow the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus). You may make your mask as trendy as you wish. Others may even follow!
We value your freedom and want you to be around to enjoy it! Remember, you are permitted to leave your home for essential work and errands. You may also leave to exercise and go on walks—as long as you are practicing social distancing guidelines. The restrictions are only to slow down the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) and save lives in our community.
Face coverings can be made of materials in your home, such as a handkerchief, bandana, or any kind of fabric that you can double and tie around your head for protection. You don’t have to have a store-bought mask. Click here to learn how to make your own mask from the CDC!
That’s a good one! Just click here to follow simple DIY instructions from the CDC.
Residents are always encouraged to protect themselves, wherever they are; however, covering of the nose and mouth are required in pharmacies, grocery stores, hardware stores, restaurants and for those providing delivery services.
We have launched an education campaign to let everyone know how they are affected. With the community’s, help we can help our visitors be safe while in our city!
Miramar Police Department has been educating businesses on how they can protect themselves, their employees and their customers. They will continue monitor and provide guidance to the public.
Individuals should always consult their health care provider for medical advice. CDC information can also be helpful. You may click on the following link to learn more from the CDC about how to protect yourself.
