Gimenez to close Miami-Dade beaches for Fourth of July – WPLG Local 10

MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla.– If your prepare for the Fourth of July were to go to the beach and watch fireworks in Miami-Dade County, you need to reconsider.
Mayor Carlos Gimenez will be signing an executive order closing all of Miami-Dade County beaches beginning on July 3. He will also be limiting any gatherings of more than 50 individuals up until July 7.
Gimenez announced on Friday night his decision to do so was as a response to more COVID-19 positive test results among young grownups and rising hospitalizations.
” I have chosen that the only prudent thing to do to tamp down this recent uptick is to punish leisure activities that put our total neighborhood at higher danger,” Gimenez said in a statement.
The list of fireworks reveals this year is restricted. Amid the pandemic, coronavirus cases are rising daily in South Florida. Those who are selecting to not use a face mask in Miami will now deal with fines.
” Fireworks display screens must be viewed from ones home or parked vehicle,” Gimenez stated.
If the idea was to celebrate at a bar, modification that plan too. The Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation purchased company owners to avoid serving alcohol at bars statewide.
” We can not turn back and overload our health centers, putting our medical professionals and nurses at higher danger with more emergency clinic cases,” Gimenez said.
In Miami-Dade, officers will close companies showing off the social distancing and masks rules and capacity limitations, Gimenez said. Lawbreakers deal with a second-degree criminal penalty of up to $500 and 180 days in jail.
” This brand-new order will be targeting those who are being most reckless and threatening our neighborhoods health and our financial healing,” Gimenez said.
Gimenez and Gov. Ron DeSantis supported President Donald Trumps push to reopen organisations with some limitations to avoid unemployment from climbing up a lot more than it already had.
” I have been seeing a lot of businesses and people neglecting these lifesaving guidelines,” Gimenez stated. “If individuals are not going to be accountable and safeguard themselves and others from this pandemic, then the federal government is forced to step in.”
County workers will check out coronavirus hotspots to supply information about screening, face masks and hand sanitizer.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, who has encouraged 6 presidents on contagious illness, had some guidance on Friday for the individuals who are ignoring social distancing and face masks orders.
“A threat for you is not just separated to you,” Fauci stated.
