Town Update on COVID-19 (Coronavirus Disease 2019) revised 4/2/2020 4:40 pm
We recommend that Gulf Stream residents follow the order and stay home except to obtain essential goods and services, in addition to adhering to the CDC recommendations regarding social distancing when not at home. Although staying at home is the goal, activities such as walking your dog and walking for exercise are allowed.
Anyone entering Gulf Stream from an area with substantial community spread, including Louisiana and the Tri-State area (NY, NJ, CT) is directed to self-isolate for a period of 14 days.
Working together as a community will allow Gulf Stream to stay safe during this difficult time. As this is a rapidly evolving situation, the Town will regularly update this website with up to date information regarding COVID-19 and related Orders from the State and County.

In 1916, the State of Florida began to open a stretch of roadway along the Atlantic Ocean coastline, as a more scenic alternative to Route 1, now called the Federal Highway. The road eventually became known as State Road A1A. To address high winds along the route, Australian Pines were planted along both sides of A1A, from Jacksonville to Miami.
