Miami-Dade County closes beaches, bans gatherings of 50 or more for Fourth of July weekend

Miami-Dade County will be closing all of the county’s beaches and will not allow gatherings of 50 or more people for Fourth of July weekend amid a spike in coronavirus cases throughout the state.

Mayor Carlos Gimenez said in a release he will be signing an emergency order on Saturday that will close the county’s beaches from Friday, July 3 until Tuesday, July 7.

“As we continue to see more COVID-19 positive test results among young adults and rising hospitalizations, I have decided that the only prudent thing to do to tamp down this recent uptick is to crack down on recreational activities that put our overall community at higher risk,” Gimenez said in a release.
