Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez announced that beaches will reopen Wednesday and the curfew established during recent daily protests against police violence is also lifted.

During a news conference Monday, Gimenez said, “We need a little bit of time get people prepared to open up the beaches. So, I want to do that no later than Wednesday.”

The beaches were originally supposed to open on June 1, but that date was pushed back due to the protests and looting that took place the weekend before opening day.
