Miami's Making It Rain With Tickets For Covid Violations


The City of Miami has issued more than 200 tickets and temporarily closed at least three dozen businesses for mask violations.

Since July 1, 217 tickets have been issued, including 41 for $50, 117 for $100, and 59 written warnings, Miami Police officials said.

36 businesses have been closed, including 17 for 24 hours and 19 for 10 days and about 685 businesses have been inspected.

Miami has been the hardest-hit city with more than 76,000 Covid cases as of Monday. The second-closest is Orlando, with just over 22,000 confirmed cases.

Miami issued an emergency order last month making masks mandatory at all times in public.
