Miami Dade can’t make up its mind. First they let the strip clubs open. Now the clubs are closing down again, not just the strip clubs but all night clubs with the 10:00 curfew. Forget everything we posted in the past week. Here’s the latest. We quote from the July 2nd article in the Miami Herald:
Six weeks after reopening most businesses, Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez began closing some again and announced a 10 p.m. curfew starting Friday as the county’s COVID spread worsens and hospitalization rates hit new records.
Gimenez announced Thursday evening a reversal of his most recent reopenings, and said he was closing casinos, strip clubs, movie theaters and other entertainment venues allowed to open through a June 4 order. It’s not clear how many businesses will be impacted by the announced curfew. The mayor’s office said commuters are exempt, as are essential workers. A spokeswoman also said restaurants can continue delivering food once the curfew takes effect.
“This curfew is meant to stop people from venturing out and hanging out with friends in groups, which has shown to be spreading the virus rapidly,” Gimenez said in a statement.
