Broward County Lifts Nightly Curfew; Miami-Dade Moves Curfew to Midnight

Broward County has lifted its nightly curfew, while the curfew in Miami-Dade was moved to start at midnight.

A 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew was issued in both counties earlier this week in response to the unrest between police and protesters during demonstrations over George Floyd's death.

Broward County's curfew was supposed to last through Sunday, but County Administrator Bertha Henry terminated the Emergency Curfew Order on Wednesday.

Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez pushed back their curfew to midnight but can change the curfew time again if "conditions change." The new curfew is effective Wednesday and remains in effect until further notice.

In Broward County, the curfew can be reimposed if "there is evidence of possible civil unrest that threatens the health, safety, or welfare of the public," county officials said. Incorporated and unincorporated areas of the county may reimpose the curfew with as little as one hour prior written notice if they feel it is needed.
