Miami-Dade’s Cinderella curfew is coming to an end. On Monday, Mayor Daniella Levine Cava announced that the county’s midnight curfew will be lifted on April 12. She shared the news during a live press conference, which follows a 14-day decline in Covid-19 positivity rates and hospitalization due to complications from the virus. For those who lost track of the regulations or unaware that we still had evening restrictions, Miami-Dade’s curfew been in effect since October 12, 2020.

The end of the curfew also signals a change to the county’s Covid-19 guidelines, which will continue to reinforce wearing a mask, social distancing and washing your hands. An aggressive campaign to get folks vaccinated is also part of the new Covid guidelines. The VACS Now outreach team will carry on going door to door to schedule people for vaccine appointments, educate them on vaccine safety and help them get the shot any way they can. So far, VACS Now has visited 10,000 homes across Miami-Dade.

South Beach’s spring break curfew also ends on April 12, with the neighborhood’s entertainment district expected to resume regular business hours and the causeways to and from the area reopening without restrictions.

Now that bars and restaurants can stay open late—and presumably clubs soon after—the real question is, does anyone actually have the stamina to stay out past midnight?
