Miami officials shut down South Beach (the most popular part of Miami Beach), limited crowds to 250 people, and implemented an 11 p.m. curfew on March 15, Business Insider’s Hillary Hoffower previously reported.

On March 17, officials implemented stricter rules for Miami-Dade County, making it illegal to have a gathering of more than 10 people on Miami Beach, Business Insider reported.

The county also closed all non-essential businesses, including restaurant dining rooms, bars, and movie theatres.

Miami-Dade County alone has nearly 2,000 confirmed cases of the coronavirus as of March 31.

It was cancelled in Fort Lauderdale, too.

South Padre Island in Texas did not close beaches for spring break initially, according to Reuters. City spokesperson Nikki Soto told Reuters that the city recommended not starting a beach party, but no one will be ticketed.

While Texas Governor Greg Abbott restricted visiting nursing homes and hospitals on March 13, he did not address tourist hot spots, Bloomberg News reported. There were no confirmed cases in the area at the time, but a couple that had been vacationing there recently tested positive for the coronavirus after returning to their home state of Michigan. The couple left South Padre Island on March 11.

On March 18, South Padre Island set several new regulations to prevent the spread of the virus, including limiting gatherings of more than 10 people on beaches, social distancing at restaurants, and a 10 p.m. curfew.

Cameron County, where South Padre Island is located, had 26 confirmed cases of coronavirus as of March 31.

In Nassau, Bahamas, spring break wasn’t cancelled initially, but now the whole country is shut down.

Student Travel Services, or STS Travel, hosts spring break programs in Cancún, Cabo, Jamaica, Punta Cana, and its most popular destination, Nassau, according to Business Insider.

STS Travel posted a video on Facebook of 250 college students partying on a booze cruise in Nassau on March 16 – the day after the Bahamas had its first confirmed case of coronavirus.

According to Jake Jacobsen, vice president of STS Travel, only 20% of customers cancelled their travelling plans after the World Health Organisation declared the coronavirus a global pandemic and the US government requested avoiding social gatherings of over 10 people.

But STS Travel limited the number of passengers to 250 people because of the outbreak, which is about half of the typical amount, and the cruise in the video was the last cruise of the Nassau 2020 program.

On March 24, with four confirmed cases of the coronavirus in the Bahamas, Dr. Hubert Minnis, the Prime Minister of the Bahamas, enacted an emergency order that halted international travel and told residents to stay home aside from essential travel to the doctor, grocery store, bank, pharmacy or gas station. All public beaches, markets, and docks are closed. This order is expected to remain in place until April 30.

A resort called Villa Del Mar Cancún updated a press release on Monday stating that there are temperature-screening measures in effect at some of the area’s airports, but there are no travel restrictions to Mexico because of the coronavirus.

There were four confirmed cases of the coronavirus in Cancún as of mid-March, according to the Mexican government. But the Latin Post reported on March 16 that, so far, the pandemic hadn’t had a significant effect on tourism. However, that might be about to change.

Tony Plohetski, a senior reporter at KVUE-TV, recently tweeted that Austin officials confirmed 28 people who spent spring break in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, tested positive for coronavirus after returning home. Four of them showed no symptoms of the virus.

Mexico also shut down all “non-essential activities,” including private businesses, until at least April 30.

Mexico has over 1,200 confirmed cases of the coronavirus per the latest available estimates.
