Miami-Dade mulling later curfew and more business reopenings amid fewer COVID cases

A little more than a week after allowing indoor dining at restaurants to resume and coming out of a holiday weekend, Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez’s administration is preparing to push the countywide curfew back to 11 p.m. and lift organized sports restrictions at parks.

Citing a steady decrease of positive COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations, Gimenez also said more businesses could soon reopen, including movie theaters.

“We wanted to get past Labor Day,” Gimenez said during an interview Tuesday morning on WIOD News Radio. “This week we should be opening up more and more of our businesses.”

The mayor and Congressional candidate also suggested bars and nightclubs may not reopen in Florida’s most populous county until there is a vaccine for the novel coronavirus. A mandate on facial coverings in public is also likely to remain in place until then.

Gimenez and other municipal elected officials have echoed medical experts

Salesforce CEO calls coming job cuts ‘part of running business in a successful way’

Salesforce (CRM), coming off a massive second quarter and poised to be added to the Dow Jones Industrial Average, is like all other businesses operating in a pandemic — having to make “difficult decisions” like cutting headcount, CEO Mark Benioff told Yahoo Finance.

The billionaire explained that job cuts, especially during a pandemic, is part of running a successful business. According to The Wall Street Journal, Salesforce is eliminating around 1,000 jobs, with the impacted workers given 60 days to find new positions within the company.
