Party's over: Miami imposes 8 p.m. curfew

After scenes like this one across Miami, Florida - hard-partying Spring Breakers gathered in the streets flouting social distancing rules and not wearing masks, the City of Miami Beach imposed an 8 p.m. curfew in its busiest entertainment district, as it attempts to control hordes of vacationers who have become unruly in recent days.

Under the new order, police on Saturday blocked off the popular Art Deco historic district in South Beach at 8 p.m. and all businesses within the blocked-off area were forced to close...

Officials also shut down the highways leading in and out of the city overnight.

City officials were scheduled to hold a meeting on Sunday to decide whether to extend the curfew measures.

The crackdown comes as partiers from across the state and country have flocked to Miami Beach for its warm weather, famed party scene and loose COVID-19 restrictions compared to other states.
