Starting this Tuesday, there will be fines of up to $ 50 for those who do not wear a mask in Miami Beach. The measure of the $ 50 fines in Miami Beach comes due to the worrying outbreak in Florida. “Our rule is simple,” said the mayor of Miami Beach after announcing the fines for people who do not wear the mask in public spaces.
The Florida city of Miami toughened fines on Monday for restaurants that do not comply with COVID-19 standards, with up to one month’s closure, while Miami Beach will punish those who do not wear a mask in public places with a $ 50 fine.
The explosion of cases in Florida, which is close to 147,000, and the refusal of Governor Ron DeSantis to make the use of the mask mandatory, led Monday to local authorities to strengthen measures against the spread of the pandemic, Efe reported.
Miami Mayor Francis Suarez decreed an emergency measure on Monday that establishes the closure of businesses for 10 days at the first violation of the rules of distance and use of a mask, 15 days the second violation and 30 days the third.
“Businesses will now face stricter penalties for those who violate COVID-19 guidelines,” said Suarez.
Miami-Dade County, which has the highest number of cases of the new coronavirus in Florida, with 35,222 of the 146,361 confirmed in the state as of Monday, is going a slower pace in the economic reopening decreed by DeSantis.
However, in the last 24 hours alone, it added 1,508 cases and deaths are close to 1,000.
In addition, the city of Miami Beach, which also belongs to Miami-Dade County, will fine as of Tuesday, up to $ 50, for those who do not wear a mask in public places where it is not possible to distance themselves from others.
Miami Beach Mayor Dan Gelber said it is not a political statement but that each person do their part in this pandemic.
“Our rule is simple, you should wear a mask in our city, on the street, waiting outside a restaurant, in the lobby of your condo or in the park,” Gelber emphasized.
In addition, Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach and Monroe counties, where the Florida Keys are, were forced to re-order the closure of their beaches this weekend, when the July 4 holiday is celebrated, the Independence of the United States.
Even the mayor of Jacksonville, Lenny Curry, who was reluctant to order the mandatory use of a mask, issued a mandate to that effect on Monday, for now in closed places in that North Florida city that will host the proclamation of Donald Trump as a republican candidate for the Presidency.
This Monday Florida registered 5,266 new cases of COVID-19 in the last 24 hours, a figure well below those of the last three days, although it may be because much less tests were carried out on Sunday than on Saturday.

Don Shula, Hall of Fame Miami Dolphins coach, dies at 90
MIAMI, Florida -- Don Shula, who won the most games of any NFL coach and led the Miami Dolphins to the only perfect season in league history, died Monday at his home, the team said. He was 90.
Shula surpassed George Halas' league-record 324 victories in 1993. He retired following the 1995 season with 347 wins, 173 losses and six ties, and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1997.
Shula became the only coach to guide an NFL team through a perfect season when the 1972 Dolphins went 17-0. They won the Super Bowl again the following season, finishing 15-2.

The 2007 Patriots came close to matching the achievement by the '72 Dolphins, winning their first 18 games before losing in the Super Bowl to the New York Giants.
Shula appeared in six Super Bowls and reached the playoffs in four decades. He coached three Hall of Fame quarterbacks: Johnny Unitas, Bob Griese and Dan Marino.
During his 26 seasons in Miami, Shula became an institution and looked the part, with a jutting jaw and glare that intimidated 150-pound sports writers and 300-pound linemen alike. His name adorns an expressway, an athletic club and a steakhouse chain.
Shula's only losing seasons came in 1976 and 1988, but he drew increasing criticism from fans and the media in his final years and retired in January 1996, with Jimmy Johnson replacing him.
Shula's active retirement included plenty of travel and social events, but in 2000 he admitted he missed coaching.
"When you do something for 26 years with an organization and have all the memories - some not so great, but mostly great memories - that's when you miss it," he said.
Before his 1970s triumphs with Miami, Shula had a reputation as a coach who thrived during the regular season but couldn't win the big games.
Shula became the youngest head coach in NFL history when the Baltimore Colts hired him in 1963 at age 33. The Colts finished 12-2 the following season and were widely seen as the league's dominant team.
But they lost 27-0 to Cleveland in the title game, and for the next few years they continued to come up short.
The humiliation was greatest in the Super Bowl to end the 1968 season. The Colts steamrolled through the NFL, finishing 13-1 and outscoring opponents by a nearly 3-1 margin. After crushing the Browns 34-0 in the title game, they were overwhelming favorites to defeat the Jets of the upstart American Football League, which had lost the first two Super Bowls.
But the Colts lost 16-7, blowing numerous scoring opportunities and allowing Jets quarterback Joe Namath to control the game. The result is still regarded by many as the biggest upset in pro football history, and it contributed to Shula's departure from Baltimore after the 1969 season.
In 1970, following the NFL-AFL merger, Shula joined the Dolphins, a fourth-year AFL expansion team that had gone 3-10-1 the previous year.
Miami improved to 10-4 in his first season and made the playoffs for the first time, and the 1971 Dolphins reached the Super Bowl before losing to Dallas. The following season, when Miami took a 16-0 record into the Super Bowl against Washington, Shula considered his legacy on the line.
