New Normal Guidelines – Updates

The Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs has received several requests for clarification regarding the variety of governmental messages recently issued about pandemic regulations. Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez has just issued a set of rules that reiterate and revise the County’s New Normal guidelines. The highlights are outlined below and we are here to help.

Physical Distancing and Face Coverings

Physical distancing of at least 6 feet must be maintained. Amendment No. 2 to Miami-Dade County Emergency Order 20-20 updates requirements regarding the need to wear face coverings ( Face coverings must still be worn in public settings but there are exceptions, including if a person is (1) stationary, (2) outdoors, and (3) a fixed physical barrier, marker, or obstruction exists to ensure a separation of not less than 10 feet between the stationary individual and all other persons. For more details, please review the above-referenced Amendment No. 2.

Arts and Culture Protocols

The County’s  New Normal guidelines  remains as the source for protocols that must be followed by the cultural community ( – Arts & Culture section beginning on page 18).


The countywide curfew, from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m., remains in place.

Group Activities

All group activities must be able to achieve physical distancing and comply with the requirement of face coverings. Generally, spaces that host these activities cannot exceed 50% of their occupancy limits. Theaters, playhouses and auditoria must submit plans to the County for review and approval. We have been referring inquiries about events and activities involving related areas, such as food or retail, to the relevant sections in the  New Normal guidelines  for general guidance  (  Please see the below chart with examples.
