HIALEAH, FL – Hialeah will begin enforcing a nightly curfew in an effort to slow the spread of the new coronavirus starting at 11 p.m. on Monday, March 30. The curfew will lift each morning at 5 a.m.

The announcement was posted on the city's website Monday and included some exceptions to the curfew. Those exceptions include travel to and from approved, essential workplaces; travel for medical emergencies; and food delivery services. Hialeah residents who walk their dogs must stay within 250 feet of their home or building at all times.

In addition, essential state, county and City of Hialeah emergency services, hospital services and utility emergency repairs will be exempt from the curfew.

Mayor Carlos Hernandez posted a video announcing the curfew on Twitter Monday afternoon encouraging residents to "do everything possible" to stop to spread.

"Please make sure you're not in the streets after 11 p.m.," he said. "Let's keep working together, let's keep doing what we need to do to slow down the spread of coronavirus."

Hialeah is just the latest city to enforce nightly curfews in an effort to stem the spread of the virus. On Friday, Miami instituted a nightly curfew that begins at 10 p.m. and lifts at 5 a.m.
