Miami-Dade, Florida, Mayor Carlos Giménez announced Wednesday he is loosening some restrictions in the county after a meeting with Miami Mayor Francis Suarez, Dr. Anthony Fauci and Dr. Deborah Birx.
Starting Monday, Miami-Dade's 10 p.m. curfew will be pushed back one hour to 11 p.m., Giménez said. Restaurants and businesses will be allowed to serve customers for the extra hour, he said.
Anyone attending a college or professional sporting event that ends after the curfew should keep their game ticket "in case you get stopped by police when you're heading home," Giménez said.
The University of Miami Hurricanes season opener at Hard Rock Stadium is scheduled for 8 p.m. Thursday, with 13,000 socially distanced fans allowed to attend.
Zoos and animal adventure parks, like Zoo Miami and Jungle Island, can open their gates to visitors for outdoor activities starting Monday as well, Giménez said.
Playgrounds in the county will remain closed while baseball and softball will now be allowed, with some restrictions. Other amateur contact sports like football and soccer are still not allowed, the mayor said.
Rental scooters and bikes will also be allowed. Scooter companies have been asked to provide sanitizing supplies at docking stations for customers, Giménez said.
Miami-Dade is down to a 6.46% positivity rate in its 14-day average, according to Giménez.
