Announcement Made As Cases Continue To Surge In South Florida
MIAMI, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — In a story breaking Friday night, Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez has announced that he will sign an executive order CLOSING all beaches in Miami-Dade County starting on July 3rd.
“After consulting with our County’s public health experts,” he wrote, “ I will be signing an emergency order on Saturday to close all beaches in Miami-Dade County starting Friday, July 3, and ending Tuesday, July 7. The closure may be extended if conditions do not improve and people do not follow ‘New Normal’ rules requiring masks…”
The order comes as Florida logged more than 10,000 new cases in total (resident and non-resident) on Thursday and announced on Friday.
Palm Beach County officials have not yet announced whether they intend to close beaches for the July 4th weekend as well. Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach Counties have been attempting to work in lock-step with each other when it comes to major closures and announcements. The concern is Miami-Dade residents will drive North to Broward and Palm Beach Counties and overcrowd beaches.
