Miami Beach extends curfew over spring break crowds
The city of Miami Beach on Sunday night extended an 8 p.m. curfew for the entertainment district, which was introduced after crowds of spring breakers gathered in the city despite the pandemic.
Why it matters: Interim City Manager Raul Aguila said after declaring a state of emergency the measures were imposed in an effort to prevent COVID-19 transmission. SWAT teams were called in Saturday night to enforce the curfew, which was extended from 72 hours to up to three weeks, per the Miami Herald.
