Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez says that all of the county’s beaches and parks will close from Friday July 3 to Tuesday July 7. He warned that the shutdown could be extended if conditions did not improve and people did not follow the rules designed to curb the spread of the coronavirus.
Gimenez is also working to curb large gatherings over the holiday weekend, limiting meetings and parades to no more than 50 people. Masks and social distance are needed.
The fireworks must be seen from home or from a parked vehicle, according to the order of the mayor.
“I have seen too many companies and people ignoring these life-saving rules,” said Gimenez. “If people are not responsible and protect themselves and others from this pandemic, then the government is forced to intervene and restore common sense to save lives.”
