MIAMI, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Massive protest across Miami-Dade County have led Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez to reinstate the county-wide curfew that was in the process of being relaxed.
Minutes ago, Gimenez issued this statement:
“Due to increasing unrest in parts of Miami-Dade County, I’ve ordered the curfew time to be moved back up to 10 p.m. effective tonight, Friday, June 5, 2020 until further notice.”
That means beaches — which have not yet reopened — remain closed until further notice. Everyone not out and about with a legitimate reason after 10 p.m. in Miami-Dade County faces arrest.
While not directly impacting Palm Beach County, be advised that if you are heading to Miami this evening, you now face arrest if you are not an essential worker.
