Masks or face coverings will be required in public in Miami due to the increase in Covid-19 cases, Mayor Francis Suarez announced during a news conference Monday. The order will go into effect immediately.
Until now, masks were only required indoors. Masks will now be required at all times.
There are various zip codes of most concern, including Little Havana, Suarez said. In these zip codes, Miami will be handing out masks to the public.
Suarez said the number of hospitalizations, the number of people on ventilators and the number of people in intensive care are up.
