[ARCHIVED] City of Homestead Issues Emergency Order Urging Residents to Wear Masks in Public

COVID-19

The City of Homestead has issued an order urging residents to wear a mask or other personal protective equipment while out in public.  This is an additional safety measure being implemented under the State of Emergency declared in response to the national and regional outbreak of COVID-19.  Pursuant to recent guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), masks of any kind are considered another important tool for residents to continue social distancing practices like staying home if they are able and keeping a distance of six feet between themselves and others while out in public. Please note that this does not impose any additional restrictions on which businesses within the City of Homestead may remain open for essential purposes.

“Everyone is safer at home and we encourage residents to stay home as much as possible,” said Homestead Emergency Manager Stephen Taylor.  “However, when you do have to leave to get groceries or for some other essential service it’s important to protect yourself, protect others, and help stop the spread of the virus.”

Those who think they may have been exposed to COVID-19 should call the Florida Department of Health Hotline at 1-866-779-6121.  For additional information on COVID-19 in Homestead, visit www.cityofhomestead.com/coronavirus.  In addition, residents can call the City’s Coronavirus Hotline 8am – 5pm Monday – Friday at 305-224-4438 or send questions via email to covid19@cityofhomestead.com.
