Things are slowly getting back to normal in South Florida. On Thursday Miami-Dade mayor Carlos Gimenez signed amendments to reopen several entertainment venues and allow certain sports scrimmages.

Movie theaters, concert spaces, convention spaces, bowling alleys, and more will open at 50 percent capacity. Eating and drinking in these spaces will only be allowed in designated spaces only. The amendment also allows for live performances, as long as the performers stay 10 feet away from attendees.

Organized inter-team sports and league games wont be permitted, except for tennis, racquetball, and baseball, as long as face coverings are worn. Facial coverings will also be required for all activities on athletic fields.

These amendments will go into effect at 12:01 p.m. on Friday.

Earlier this month mayor Gimenez also pushed back the nightly curfew from 10 p.m. to 11 p.m.. Regardless of these changes to move into the new normal, there is still a $100 fine for anyone in Miami-Dade County who is not following New Normal rules.
