Here’s a fairly current listing of municipalities in Miami-Dade County which have imposed a variety of “curfews”, “stay at home” and “safer at home” orders on their citizens during the Covid-19 pandemic. Here’s a complete list of the emergency orders issue by Miami-Dade. Courtesy of Miami-Dade County:

Several cities, like Miami, Key Biscayne, Hialeah, Coral Gables, Miami Gardens and Sweetwater have mandatory curfews in effect. But only a small number of them have made any arrests.
One North Miami man was arrested twice. The first time was for both loitering and a curfew violation on April 3. A few days later, he was arrested on a charge of grand theft, coupled with another curfew violation.
Several other residents across the county have been booked under trespassing charges, in addition to the misdemeanor curfew violation.
Eight of the arrests have come out of Homestead, which has a curfew of 10:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m.
