Following recommendations by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, officials have updated previous COVID-19 guidelines in place stating a face mask is not required for people who are keeping a safe distance at open parks, boat ramps, bay walks or beach walks.
Although, following the guideline update, Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez made clarifications about the new requirements for wearing facial coverings and protective gear when out in re-opened public spaces.
In a tweet posted yesterday, officials said park goers need to continue to wear face masks and other facial coverings while in public.
Miami-Dade officials said the only exceptions for wearing face coverings in public spaces are those engaged in strenuous activity, people who have chronic conditions that cause breathing trouble and children under the age of two years old.
