On Tuesday, March 17th, Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez announced the closure of all county gyms. Now, after 78 days of closure, Miami-Dade gyms have been given the green light to open on Monday, June 8th, albeit cities within the county can decide to keep gyms closed longer, although that doesn't seem likely.
In a June 3 afternoon call, Gimenez confirmed the date with the "working wellness group" - a collection of fitness professionals who have been working with the county on reopening.
The remarks and upcoming order allowing Miami-Dade gyms to open comes over a week after Broward gyms and fitness centers were given permission to resume business on May 26th.
