Court Upholds Miami-Dade’s Covid Curfew
An executive order issued by Gov. Ron DeSantis to help reopen the state’s economy amid the covid-19 pandemic does not block Miami-Dade County from imposing a curfew, an appeals court ruled Wednesday. A panel of the 3rd District Court of Appeal rejected arguments by Tootsie’s Cabaret strip club that the executive order “preempts” the curfew, which was imposed from midnight to 6 a.m. and was aimed at preventing spread of the virus. “Had the governor meant to preempt local governments from imposing curfews, he could have said so. Accordingly, Tootsie’s failed to show that section two of EO 20-244 clearly and expressly preempted the county’s curfew.”–News Service of Floridaflaglerlive.com
