Miami Mayor Francis Suarez reported that he will meet with Carlos Giménez, asking him to open the bars.

Open the bars: what everyone in Florida was waiting for?

“Until all the residents are vaccinated I don’t see it possible to open the bars”

The problem, the county mayor explained, “is that it’s too dangerous an activity because you have to take off your mask to drink”, Carlos Giménez said last week.

“My suggestion is to find a way for restaurant-like bars to open, with the same limitations as they did with tables,” Suaréz said.

This Monday, when the second phase of opening in Miami-Dade County began, protests were organized by employees and bar owners, as well as nightclubs, who claim to be able to open the bars.

“I understand the protests, and they should work with them to speed up the process of opening them without harming customers“, Suarez said.

The official noted that in recent hours there were only 260 cases of coronavirus in Miami and deaths were reduced to 12. “There’s been an improvement“, he said.

He also announced that cinemas will soon be open up to 50% of their capacity, although it may take longer days to start working, until these venues adjust to the new way they can operate.

“In addition, being in phase 2 gives you the ability for schools to open in person. I think everyone wants to go to school” Suarez said.

He commented that the situation of distance learning and online has been difficult for families, but “parents should have the opportunity to send their children to school.”

As for hairdressers and restaurants, he explained that they can increase their capacity by up to 75% during this new stage.

With new commercial openings, the mayor of Miami asked residents to continue wearing face masks to prevent the spread of coronavirus.
