Beaches in Miami, Fort Lauderdale, and Palm Beach will be closed for the 4th of July weekend

All beaches and parks in the Miami-Dade county will be closed from 3 July through to 7 July amid rising concerns about the virus spread, with beaches in Broward County - including the city of Fort Lauderdale - to be closed from 3 July through 5 July.

Palm Beach mayor, Dave Kenner, also said that he will be issuing an order to close beaches under his jurisdiction going into the national holiday weekend.
