Miami’s Spring Break Is Set to Proceed Despite Virus Concerns

(Bloomberg) -- Spring breakers with plans in South Florida over the coming weeks can breathe a sigh of relief for now at least, with the mayor of Miami-Dade County saying that the show will go on.

“We’re not canceling any major events in Miami-Dade County, such as Ultra,” Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez tweeted on Tuesday, referencing the three-day electronic music festival that brought almost 170,000 attendees from 105 countries to Miami last year.

Gimenez, who’s following guidance from Florida’s Surgeon General, said the county is mostly worried about the health of older residents when it comes to the coronavirus outbreak.

Ultra is set to kick of this year in downtown Miami on March 20 at Bayfront Park.
