  1. Code enforcement takes kickbacks from apt owners , ed angelo owner and Don’s ed jr and aris steal from tenants, I lived there 23 years never missed a rent, my apt was full of black mold, deadly mold, women in apt 6 died from it I called code enforcement, they called the angelos as soon as I hung up, I was invited, as others where, clean the court house out, don’t vote anyone over 45 and vote the women in, time for change. The law and fire department are great. But do as today the mayor,

  2. I appreciate the effort however, our Govoner stated a few months ago that he will not REALLY give an accurate count because his BOSS doesn’t want anyone to know the truth.
    I know it’s a difficult task for many, but I’m wishing everyone well and to stay safe and sane. We have to look for better days ahead.

  3. Unfortunately, we have made numerous requests to the State Department of Health who releases this data and they will only provide us with this single number. We continue to press and will make additional information available if it is received from the State.

  4. Thank you for your comment. The information we provide is the only information made available to the media by the State Department of Health. We have made requests for additional data and the State has not provided any additional information. If we do receive it, we will be making it available.

  5. The information provided in this article is of little value; it simply gives a cumulative and ever increasing number of positive tests without any further context. Gables Insider, you need to do better than this.

    What is important, and missing from this article, are graphs showing over a period of at least two weeks how many people are hospitalized on a given day, how many are admitted on a given day, how many are discharged on a given day, how many are in intensive care on a given day, and how many are on ventilators on a given day. Would be even better if the age ranges of those admitted are provided.

    And for those that want mandates for masks to be worn everywhere, please read Liz’ comment on September 18th at 9:18 am. It seems she is following the science.

  6. Seconding Juan Galan and a previous commenter, your Coral Gables graph does not make sense and does not give much useful infromation. If anything, it feels like a check the box “aguaje”. The University of Miami has made a much more serious attempt: Can’t the luminaries of the reknown City Beautiful think about partnering with an institution of higher education during a time of crisis and deep learning, or are they just that dull, or is it simply not convenient?

  7. The Miami Dade county requirement to wear masks while even walking OUTSIDE is against what has been proven otherwise => that the majority of transmission is inside and when in close/stationary contact more then 15 min. If you can’t keep distance of at least 3-6 feet and you are standing and not moving, then I agree, wearing a mask outside is acceptable. But walking?
    Hope Mayor Giménez rescinds this part of the order soon.

  8. We suspect this was a ‘data dump’ however we are still pending official confirmation from the Florida Department of Health.

  9. The graphs reflects 720 new cases for what area? The three days of positives on the chart certainly don’t equal 720. Could you please be more specific Gables Insider?

  10. Like many others I have been disappointed with the lack of mask wearing that I have seen all over Miracle Mile during lunchtime. It’s almost like people don’t care about protecting others from the virus. I feel safer going inside a shopping mall than walking around my own neighborhood. Look at the case trend, more cases when the county/city began opening up and people are acting like its back to normal.

  11. We have almost 51,000 residents and 1510 cases since March. Do the math- it’s 2.9% infection rate. The number off cases is only important as a percentage of the population. Coral Gables is doing a much better job than most cities in terms of their infection rate. The City does not need to infringe more upon the populations’ civil rights. The risk of infection outside is negligible. The politicians are doing the right thing.

  12. There is very little law enforcement in Coral Gables regarding mask use. And also no law enforcement regarding people riding bikes and skateboards where there are signs that say they should not like Ponce de Leon Blvd.

  13. Are these #s for Coral Gables residents regardless of where they were tested, or does it include non-residents tested in the Gables?

  14. Good afternoon. Jack Thompson here, a resident of Coral Gables for 38 years. Unfortunately, the Mayor and the Commission have decided not to enforce the County’s mask order. The order mandates that Coral Gables enforce the order, but that mandate is being ignored. Public health and safety are also being ignored. I have requested and have received (by means of Florida’s public records law) copies of all of the Citations issued for mask violations. There have only been 11–ELEVEN–Citations, even though police officers are observating individuals all over Coral Gables not wearing masks, as they are required to be worn at all times outside, unless someone is running or otherwise engaged in strenuous activity. Walking requires a mask.

    So if you are wondering why the Covid infection rate is so high and is going up in Coral Gables, there’s the likely reason.

    Commissioner Lago cares, he says, about the environment. Great. How about he care enough about the human souls who live in this environment to speak up and say that the mask order should be enforced? Jack Thompson, 5721 Riviera Drive, Coral Gables, [email protected]

  15. Let’s start requiring masks EVEN while leisurely walking DONT understand the Mayors reluctance to wear masks while leisurely walking up and down Biltmore Way like I see from my balcony WITHOUT MASKS! What are you waiting for? To reach 2000 Covid infected people here in the Gables! PLEASE ACT today so this virus can be lowered at least in our community and those who are high risk and take care of themselves feel safe again!

  16. I see people without masks all over the Gables. Living in Coral Gables is synonymous with wealth,success, and a great life. Why in the world would anyone put that in jeopardy by not wearing a mask? I don’t get it. You work hard to achieve this life and lifestyle and you will let this virus take it all away. Wear a damn mask.

  17. Will the City of Coral Gables ever require masks at ALL TIMES? Leisure walking such as those people who walk in Miracle Mile on Sunday afternoon without A mask while we are eating without masks is a. BIG MISTAKE from our government. I had dinner last Sunday in Seasons 52 while people were walking up and down Miracle Mile , some of them WITHOUT A MASK. Unless you ask that it is Mandatory to wear a mask at all times even while leisurely walking YOU ARE NOT MAKING A SAFE AND HEALTHY DECISION for us Coral Gables residents. THINK AGAIN,,
    Masks should be worn all the time so numbers will go down in the Gables as they been going up for the past few days and already hit more than 1000. Elected officials thank you for listening to,this complaint and doing something about it.

  18. Seriously ? Our City leaders have shown ironically no leadership at all during this crisis–they have ‘elected’ to take a backseat and just follow whatever Miami-Dade County does AND a day later. Our City did not participate with the other mayors and is not trying to be an active part of the solution. it is not even looking out for its residents and now, it is reopening the site AND passing the cost along to its citizens. Disheartening and disappointing…certainly not the City leaders we had in the past.

  19. Is there a more clear visual? It is very hard to read the graphs, especially the number of new cases by day.

  20. I, for one, would rather know the truth even if it’s not to my liking, so thanks!

    A quick review of comments illustrates a trend in ‘quarantine fatigue’ and overall frustration often misdirected at the messenger. I get that, too.

    I thought it best to let you know, many people appreciate the work you’re doing to keep us informed and expect city leaders to keep asking for important data and to consider public safety top priority.

  21. Would it be possible to also show the number of hospitalized; discharged; and deaths, if any?
    There are at least 2 hospitals in Coral Gables, although patients may not be only from Coral Gables.
