In a statement released by Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez, Miami-Dade County is now under a state of emergency.
“Although we do not have community spread at this time, we want to take the preemptive steps to keep it that way. Therefore, I have decided to suspend the operation of the Miami-Dade County Youth Fair, the Miami Open tennis tournament, the MIA 5K run, and all major events at the American Airlines Arena. The March 22 NASCAR race at the Homestead-Miami Speedway is postponed at this time. NASCAR officials will decide whether or not to hold the race without fans. “
