- must execute an attestation demonstrating that the review has been completed and the measures have been taken. The executed affidavit must be submitted via E-Mail to IMT@mdpd.com or by mail to Special Patrol Bureau/Incident Management Team 1501 N.W. 79th Avenue, Doral, Florida 33126.
Miami-Dade County is asking the general public to report violations of the County’s COVID-19 guidelines to the hotline: (305)4-POLICE.
On June 24, 2020, Miami Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez amended Emergency Order 18-20 to require hospitals to provide certain additional information twice daily, as opposed to only once; and also instructed hospitals to inform both COVID-19 patients that do not require hospitalization, and individuals who have been tested for COVID-19 but are awaiting test results, that the County has hotel space available for voluntary quarantine, if desired by such individual. Persons interested in such placements must contact Irina Gonzalez from the Florida Department of Health at (786)316-1273.
