The curfew has been in place nearly three months to help curb the spread of the coronavirus. Restaurants were forced to close their dining rooms at midnight, which is when clubs typically open. The situation has been similar in Broward. Earlier this month, nightclub owners demanded answers from Broward Mayor Dale Holness, who said businesses would still have to shut down at 11 p.

At the direction of Gov. Ron DeSantis, Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation Secretary Halsey Beshears issued an emergency order Thursday rescinding a previous order that halted the sale of alcohol at bars, an agency news release said. After the announcement, Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez made it clear that the county's bars would remain closed. Officials in Palm Beach County announced their bars would also remain closed until an order is issued by the county. In an earlier Zoom interview, Gimenez hinted that strip clubs may possibly reopen before bars, suggesting that strip clubs were less risky than bars and nightclubs in the spread of COVID
After several months of government-mandated closures, Miami's nightlife has been given the green light to resume operating, at 50 percent capacity. Earlier this month, Gov.

Plans must also follow guidelines that are specific to restaurants. Bars and nightclubs are still not allowed to reopen in Miami-Dade.
