Miami-Dade Mayor Daniella Levine Cava announced that that the countywide curfew will come to an end.
Levine Cava made the announcement Monday afternoon.
“We are announcing that the curfew will be lifted next Monday, April 12th,” she said. “In close consultation with Dr. Paige and my senior leadership team, we developed these new guidelines based on the current status of the COVID response, the availability of the vaccine, the aggressive campaign that we’re mounting.
The announcement also comes on the day Florida opened up vaccines to residents 18 years old and older. Residents aged 16 and 17 can also receive the Pfizer vaccine with parent or guardian approval.
The countywide curfew was first implemented by former Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez in light of the pandemic.
