Despite our notice yesterday, our posting of signs, and tape on doors to the beach, we are disappointed to see that a small number of our residents continue to ignore the Village’s Emergency Order to stay off the beaches. We share the Village’s frustration* with these measures that are intended to prevent the spread of COVID-19, which is emphasized in this afternoon’s Islander News Editorial
Please be advised that the Association will be using cameras to monitor access through those doors, and amongst other remedies, violators will be subject to a fine by the Association.
* From Village of Key Biscayne COVID-19 April 2nd Update:
Beach Closures: We’ve received reports that more people are NOT COMPLYING with the Miami-Dade County Emergency Order 06-20, dated March 18, 2020, stating that ALL parks, beaches and recreational facilities in the incorporated and unincorporated areas of Miami-Dade County are CLOSED, effective March 19, 2020. This closure was enacted to prevent spread of the COVID-19 infection by minimizing opportunities for contact between residents. Failure to obey the beach closure increases the possibility of COVID-19 spread, putting yourselves, your family, your friends and the community at risk. We want to win the fight against COVID-19. That means we must all do our part to stop the spread of this virus. We all need to be socially responsible and practice social distancing for the wellbeing of our entire Village. Remember, the best way to avoid COVID-19 is to avoid exposure. Continue to practice social distancing, maintaining a six-foot distance between yourself and other people. And obey Emergency Orders designed to protect your safety.
