Miami-Dade County has confirmed with the RNC, the permit holder for President Trump’s rally planned for the airport in Opa-Locka, that the gates for the outdoor event will open at 7:30 p.m. The event is scheduled to end before midnight.

Safety personnel will hand out flyers listing COVID-19 public health safety rules to attendees requiring facial coverings and physical distancing. The RNC campaign also confirmed it will have staff distribute masks and hand sanitizer to those attending.

“As we have done with recent late-ending sporting events, the County will be flexible on letting people travel home safely,” Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez said.
