Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez signs amendment closing on-site dining from midnight to 6 a.m.
Food establishments may continue kitchen operations for pick-up and delivery service
On Tuesday, June 30, 2020, Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez signed Amendment 5 to Emergency Order 23-20 closing all on-site dining from 12:01 a.m. to 6 a.m. each day at food service establishments with seating for more than eight people. This amendment goes into effect at 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, July 1, 2020, and remains in effect until further notice.
“We must take this action to tamp down Miami-Dade County’s recent rise in COVID-19 cases,” said Mayor Gimenez. “Too many people were crowding into restaurants late at night, turning these establishments into breeding grounds for this deadly virus.”
Restaurants and food establishments may continue to operate their kitchens to provide pick-up and delivery service. In addition, employees, janitorial personnel, contractors and delivery personnel will be allowed to access these establishments at all times.
Amendment 5 follows action taken on Sunday, June 28, when Mayor Gimenez signed Amendment 4 to Emergency Order 23-20 stating that no establishment shall sell alcohol for on-site consumption between the hours of 12:01 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. each day. This order has been in effect since 11:59 p.m. on Monday, June 29, 2020.
In addition, Amendment 4 states that hookah lounges remain closed.
