COVID-19 Advisory #129: AO 21-23 Reinstates Mask Requirement at All Miami-Dade Courts

 

Following a Miami-Dade County mandate issued yesterday requiring the wearing of masks in all County facilities, and in response to a resurgence of COVID-19 transmission rates, the Honorable Nushin G. Sayfie, Chief Judge of the Miami-Dade Courts, has reinstated mask requirements at all Miami-Dade courthouses.

Administrative Order (AO) 21-23 requires all judges, court staff and visitors to any Miami-Dade courthouse to wear a mask at all times while inside the courthouse. Security staff will provide masks to those who do not have one. Masks must be worn in order to enter any Miami-Dade courthouse.

“We are taking a common sense and science-based step today in keeping with Mayor Levine Cava’s directive and the advice of the CDC and the medical experts who regularly consult with us on COVID-19 safety practices,” Chief Judge Sayfie said. “From the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have remained steadfast in our goal to continue to provide the community with access to justice while keeping all court participants as safe as possible.”

The full text of AO 21-23 is downloadable below.
