Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez will allow gyms to remain open in the county.
The mayor made the announcement on Twitter, Tuesday morning.
Gyms were initially included in the types of businesses required to shut down in Miami-Dade on Wednesday.
However, Gimenez said that he came to a compromise on the matter and that people heading to the gyms will be required to wear masks the entire time they are inside the gym.
Over 200k cases & days of over 10k cases in FL. In Miami-Dade, restaurants and gyms are closed again. Right now, I have 2 close friends, maybe 3 going through it. A 4th close friend’s aunt just died in Orlando after 5 days in ICU.
