A Message from Mayor George “Bud” Scholl

(Thursday, May 6, 2021) – Effective immediately, the City of Sunny Isles Beach is no longer enforcing COVID-19 guidelines on private property. As stated in the Governor’s Executive Order 21-102, we cannot enforce any previous guidelines and restrictions for local businesses. However, we still encourage and expect all businesses to continue being conscientious in their practices and following CDC guidelines as they relate to COVID-19.

Our City operations will remain in place and are not affected by the order. On all City-owned property, including the Government Center and parks, we are following the guidance of the CDC including social distancing, wearing facial coverings, and avoiding crowded areas. We do intend to reinstate some activities that were previously restricted, including returning to in-person Commission Meetings in June.

Our local state of emergency is still in effect and we continue to promote best practices to keep our community safe. We encourage the entire Sunny Isles Beach community to remain vigilant in your safety practices because the threat of COVID-19 is still real and present. We must be conscious of those in our community who may not feel comfortable returning to normal and those who have not yet been vaccinated.

And if you have not received the COVID-19 vaccine and are eligible, I strongly encourage you to get vaccinated. The vaccine is our best shot at curtailing the risk of COVID-19 and completely returning to our normal lives. For more information and to find the nearest vaccination site, visit sibfl.net/vaccines.

This situation remains fluid and we will continue to provide regular updates. I ask all residents, businesses, and visitors to be responsible, do your part, and help keep our city safe.
