Face Coverings Mandated in Cutler Bay Grocery Stores, Restaurants and Pharmacies—Effective April 10

In order to protect the health, safety and welfare of the residents of Cutler Bay, Town Manager Rafael Casals signed Emergency Order 20-01 today, which requires all employees and customers of grocery stores, restaurants and pharmacies within Cutler Bay to wear a form of covering over their nose and mouth at all times inside those facilities. Additionally, all individuals providing delivery services must wear a form of covering over their nose and mouth while making deliveries. The Order is effective April 10, 2020 at 11:59 p.m.—click here to read the complete order.

A covering over the nose and mouth may include a face mask, homemade mask, or other cloth covering such as a scarf, bandana, handkerchief, or other similar cloth covering. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention prepared a brief video that demonstrates a simple way to make a face covering with everyday household items. Watch the video here.

This Order also encourages all individuals working at other essential businesses to wear face coverings and other personal protective equipment, such as gloves, subject to availability of the items.

The Order encourages for the face coverings to not be surgical masks or N-95 respirators, if possible, as those are critical supplies that must continue to be reserved for healthcare workers and other medical first responders, as recommended by current CDC guidance.

This order only applies to those facilities and customers within Town boundaries.


Reemployment Assistance Paper Applications Available at Select County Libraries

In an effort to help Miami-Dade County residents applying for state unemployment benefits, the Miami-Dade Public Library System (MDPLS) will be providing printed copies of Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) Reemployment Assistance Applications at 26 library locations beginning Wednesday, April 8.

Unemployment applications in English, Spanish and Creole and envelopes to return them in will be available for pickup at tables outside the library entrances from 8 a.m. – 7 p.m. seven days a week until further notice. Residents can take the application home to fill out and then return it in the sealed envelope by dropping it off in the library location’s book drop or at any CareerSource Florida location.

Applications will be picked up from the book drops every day and delivered to CareerSource South Florida where trained staff will send them securely overnight to DEO in Tallahassee for processing. Residents can also download and print a copy of the application from DEO's website and return it to any participating library’s book drop.
