CHASER. . .
But you can still get a lap dance at a strip club:
UPDATE: Miami-Dade says lap dances are not considered performances.
So, as of now, lap dances may continue at strip clubs in the county. https://t.co/n826Lo5kF0

For real. Confirmed via an email with Deputy Mayor Jennifer Moon:
Deep breath, Twitter. Lap dances NOT actually banned in Miami-Dade by new COVID rules. The 10-ft required buffer for performances reported today isn’t new & doesn’t govern lap dances. My email w Dpty Mayor Jennifer Moon, charged w COVID rule making. She said lap dances still OK pic.twitter.com/7dHbWkwCuh

If you want people to stop taking everything the government says on corona seriously, well then, this is a pretty good place to start.
