COVID-19 - Your Wednesday Afternoon Update
 
 
Good Afternoon, VKB Residents,

As the workday comes to a close, we wanted to reach out with some recent updates, as well as reminders.

  • Quality of life is a core value of our Village. We are looking into the feasibility of whether the Village of Key Biscayne could establish a testing site or provide similar alternatives. We will receive data in the coming days to evaluate what it would take to deliver this service to residents, what resource and ask is needed from the mainland and County, and could the Village leverage existing health resources on the island, like CVS Health, Baptist Health, health professionals, etc., to deliver quick and easy testing to residents.
     
  • We all need to lead by example. To this end, the Village is actively working to get construction sites to voluntarily cease construction. To-date, many have complied, but we need full cooperation to help flatten the curve. Tomorrow we will continue our efforts to achieve 100% voluntary compliance and evaluate progress to-date before the weekend.
While COVID-19 continues to impact life as we know it, the Village of Key Biscayne is committed to protecting the quality of life on the Key. We will deliver excellence and preserve a unified sense of community. Alexis Carrel, Nobel Laureate, said it best: "the quality of life is more important than life itself." We are the Key to flatten the curve.

Have a good night,
Your Village of Key Biscayne
