Fines for not wearing a mask in South Florida.
Florida: State officials have determined that one of the best ways to prevent the spread of COVID-19 is by wearing a mask. Thus, if residents choose not to, they will be fined. How much? That depends on county officials, most of whom agree that masks must by worn indoors and outdoors in public spaces, especially to avoid being fined.
In Miami-Dade County, for example, residents may be fined as much as $100 for failing to wear a mask in public and business owners will be issued a $500 civil fine.
The new ordinance allows Miami-Dade police and enforcement agencies to issue tickets or civil citations to those not wearing a mask or disregarding the 6-feet social distancing rule.
Failure to comply with the “New Normal” guidelines can lead to a second-degree misdemeanor with fines as high as $500 and 180 days in jail.
Exceptions to the mask law include children under two & adults with underlining medical or physical conditions in which wearing a facial covering may further jeopardize their well-being. Also, those that are hearing impaired are excluded, as well as those eating, drinking, exercising, or playing sports outdoors.
In Miami, a $50 fine will be issued to first offenders, with the fine escalating upon every offence; $100 for the second offence and $500 for three time offenders, according to Miami police.
The Perazzo Law Firm urges Miami-Dade residents to stay safe and avoid fines.
NURSING HOME STAFF AND COVID-19
Little Havana: A nursing home staff member tested positive for COVID-19 but continued to assist residents at the South Florida Home Services. Negligence by the staff member, who only wore a surgical mask as protection, allegedly led to over 50% of the nursing home residents testing positive for COVID-19. The Florida Agency for Health Care Administration closed the Little Havana assisted living center this Thursday for failure to safeguard the well-being of its residents. According to the report filed by the Agency, residents showing signs of infection were hospitalized, tested, & then returned to the home before receiving their results. Furthermore, the negligence by the nursing home operators includes not isolating residents showing signs of the coronavirus or even those testing positive. This shows absolute negligence for the well-being of the nursing home residents. Operators may be held accountable for personal injury claims filed by family members of those suffering bodily or mental harm or wrongful death from COVID-19. Following a May 22 inspection of the Little Havana home, staff lacked the proper gear to prevent the COVID-19 spread among residents, in fact, the infected staff member was seen interacting with residents & colleagues. The Adult Protective Services Agency moved the residents out on May 24 & the facility was closed on the May 28.

CRUISE LINE CREW ON HUNGER STRIKE
The crew of the Royal Caribbean's Navigator of the Seas Ocean liner are carrying out a hunger strike until they are granted permission by the company to abandon ship & finally go home. The fifteen crew members, all of whom are from Romania, have been under lock-down on the ship since March 13, when all operations came to a sudden halt because of the coronavirus pandemic that broke out on board and while at sea around the world. Some of the fifteen Romanian crew members complain of degrading mental health & over physical deterioration. Though not clear what the future awaits the Royal Caribbean crew & their hunger strike, a company spokesperson stated that the matter has been resolved. However, the crew members have told news reporters that they plan to continue with their hunger strike until Royal Caribbean issues formal proof that states the Romanian crew members will be granted permission to disembark & go home. Thus far, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention has prohibited repatriation of cruise-ship crew members on commercial airlines. Thus, a private air transportation service would be responsible for taking the crew members home. The crew would be obliged to meet all COVID-19 safety & prevention protocol upon leaving the ship.

However, with walking comes the chances of falling victim to negligent motorists, many of whom use their cellphones while behind the wheel, with texting and driving as the leading cause of cell phone related accidents involving pedestrians. Sadly, pedestrians in cities such as Little Havana, Little Haiti, Doral, Kendall, and Miami Gardens are struck and killed almost everyday as a result of negligence on both parts. Causeways like the MacAuthor and roadways like Bird Road are just a few of the recent locations where pedestrians have lost their lives due to a pedestrian accident involving a moving vehicle. Though it isn’t always the driver of a motor vehicle’s fault, negligent cell phone use and intoxication behind the wheel play a major part in most pedestrian accidents in Miami. Unfortunately, pedestrians are also sometimes to blame for accidents in which they end-up injured or suffer fatal injuries. Negligent cellphone use while walking across streets, avenues, and roadways may cause distraction when stepping into the flow of traffic. Pedestrians taking to streets at night, especially those wearing dark colored clothing or crossing in poorly lit areas, run higher risks of being hit by a moving vehicle.

MIAMI-DADE TRANSIT BUSES ON 836 EXPRESSWAY SHOULDERS AS OF MONDAY.
As of Monday, heavy traffic will allow Miami-Dade buses to ride the shoulders of 836 expressway in an attempt to lessen the commuter traffic woes of those heading into downtown Miami. The express service is expected to leave every ten minutes and buses may use the shoulders of the 836 toll highway during daytime rush hour traffic. Though the bus service was revved to go last year, a legal battle between the MDX and a state law has delayed the express service until this Monday. Meanwhile, the shoulders of the 836 have already been revamped to allow buses to move about hassle free amid traffic creeping along at speeds under 30 mph. Tickets to ride the express buses will cost $2.25 and have multiple stops between the Overtown Metrorail station and the main terminal close to the Government Center Metrorail station.

With buses travelling along shoulders, drivers must beware as a collision can easily impact motorist stalled in traffic.

COURT FINDS SUBCONTRACTOR AT FAULT FOR CONDO FIRE
The Third District Court of Appeal in Miami has ruled that a subcontractor was at fault for a fire that started within a condo during its renovation. According to the court facts, painters hired by the Brother's Painting and Pressure Cleaning Corp, acted negligently when they failed to properly dispose of a stain-soaked rag, which was placed inside a plastic trashcan. Somehow the rag caught fire and led to damages to the condominium's interior. Meanwhile, the court has ruled that the general contractor is a passive actor in the case and worthy of indemnification on the grounds that the subcontractor was hired to carry out the painting work without causing property damage or injury to its dwellers. However, the subcontractors disagree on the basis that the general contractor was indeed negligent, and no indemnification is owed for damages to the condo. The final ruling is awaiting confirmation by the Circuit Court for Monroe County.
