Today is Wednesday, December 2 and these are the main news of the day:
1.- Miami Beach is offering city businesses a mechanism for tracking contacts in the COVID-19 chain, thanks to the Rockefeller Foundation, which seeks to protect the health of tourists and employees. In the coming days, contact trackers, associated with the Department of Health, will visit hotels, restaurants and cultural centers where there have been infections.
2.- The CDC approved the initial distribution plans for the coronavirus vaccine. In the first phase, priority will be given to health personnel and those residing in care centers. 24 million people would receive the first dose before the end of the year. The FDA will decide on Pfizer’s vaccine on December 10 and on Moderna’s on December 17.
3.- There was chaos in the delivery of 500 Publix gift cards for 250 dollars. Many of those who got up early to queue were left without this help provided by the city of Miami. Some because they were not residents and others because they were not among the first 500 to arrive at the place. This was the first installment of a total of five schedules until December 29.
4.- In Miami Lakes there is help available for small businesses affected by the pandemic. They are federal funds that are available and to receive the help, they must demonstrate that they suffered losses greater than 15 percent compared to 2019 or that they have difficulty paying the mortgage or rent. The deadline to apply is Friday at 5 pm. More information at this link.
5.- The Miami Heat presented their alternate uniform for the next season, which will begin on December 11. The uniform mixes the colors pink, fuscia and aqua blue, which the team already used in their alternative shirts last season. The 2020 runner-up Heat will play their first game on Dec. 14 against the New Orleans Pelicans at the American Airlines Arena.
