Miami-Dade County to lift Covid-19 curfew April 12
Miami-Dade County will soon do away with its safer-at-home order when it comes to late-night business operations.
County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava announced at a Monday press conference that the curfew would officially lift April 12. She also revealed streamlined health and safety guidelines for the county that prioritize wearing a mask, social distancing, sanitization and remaining at home if sick.
For hospitality businesses, one of the hardest-hit industries during the pandemic, it means in-person sales past midnightfor the first time in over a year.
The county set a curfew during the initial months of the Covid-19 pandemic to limit group gatherings at places such as restaurants, bars and other venues. The curfew, from midnight to 6 a.m., targeted hours many business owners said represented their most profitable period prior to the pandemic. Violations meant hefty fines.
Those hours may soon become profitable once again.
