Companies are finally back in business. Governor DeSantis announced that both Miami-Dade and Broward enter phase 2 of reopening the coronavirus on September 14. “I am confident that we can continue to open up more and more business”, Mayor Carlos Gimenez said.

After Gov. Ron DeSantis announced that South Florida may move on to phase 2 of economic reopening on September 14, Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez reported that he will be meeting with his team of medical experts to determine the steps to take in the county.

The rate of positivity of coronavirus cases in Miami-Dade reached 6.3% on Friday and, according to Gimenez, hospital occupancy has decreased by 75%.

“I am confident that we can continue to open up more and more business because we know how to live with this virus”

Said the mayor, who added that it is now more important than ever for social distance to be maintained and people continue to wear masks to prevent coronavirus.

Although the mayor did not specify which businesses they will be able to reopen, in phase 2 they can re-operate entertainment sites operating indoors, such as game rooms, party and banquet halls, bowling alleys and cinemas. All businesses must operate at 50% of their capacity.

Bars and clubs will remain closed in both Miami-Dade and Broward, unlike the rest of Florida, where they are operating at half their capacity.

Why not open other businesses?

In this regard, Gimenez said that the problem with this type of business, is that all people are together and can not wear masks because they have to take it off to drink their drinks.

The entry to phase 2 reopening adds to the announcements of relaxation of measures to prevent coronavirus made during the week by Mayor Gimenez, which include the decrease in curfew hours, which will now be from 11:00 pm and not 10:00 pm, and the opening of parks for sports, until 10:00 p.m. daily.

Broward had already opened theaters and bowling alleys at 50% of his capacity about a month ago, so he issued a statement on Friday, reporting that on September 14 there will be no major changes in the county, when he formally enters phase 2.
