Miami-Dade County Lifts COVID-19 Curfew
April 08, 2021
The curfew has been in place since last year as coronavirus cases were on the rise in South Florida. However, as reported by NBC Miami: "Miami-Dade County's COVID Curfew Will Be Lifted April 12: Mayor"
, the midnight curfew in Miami-Dade will be lifted on April 12th. Mayor Daniella Levine said the decision was taken as the county's positivity rate has been slowly trending downward and as the vaccine availability has improved.
The mayor said about 72% of people age 65 and over have been vaccinated in Miami-Dade, with more than 800,000 getting at least one dose. She believes the best tool is the vaccine as it's the only thing that can end this pandemic so that people can return back to a sense of normalcy.
The mayor has confirmed the reopening of senior centers and the ability for childcare centers to double their capacity. Levine Cava urged people to keep their masks on and maintain social distancing. South Beach, which had a much tighter curfew during spring break, is ready to meet the county's example. Restaurants, bars and the hospitality industry have been struck significantly by the pandemic, with many fighting to remain open.
