Miami-Dade Mayor Insists He Will Still Enforce Corona Curfew After Tootsie’s Ruling Overturned

Miami-Dade had a nightly curfew for four months straight until last weekend – and it is now back in place after a temporary pause that lasted over the weekend.

County Mayor Carlos Gimenez announced in a statement yesterday that he will be enforcing a curfew again starting today.

Last week, strip club Tootsie’s Cabaret challenged the curfew in court, and a judge on Friday issued a temporary restraining order that invalidated enforcement.

Gimenez and his administration brought the case to an appeals court, which overturned the decision yesterday.

Enforcement of the curfew will begin again tonight and run from midnight to 6 AM, Gimenez said.

Gimenez also said he will be speaking with White House medical experts today and with the County’s public health experts on Wednesday to get their input.
