Looking to unwind this summer with a relaxing beachside vacation? Luckily for you, the Florida Keys is still open for business.
One of Florida’s most popular vacation getaways, the Keys is back up and running — albeit with some new COVID-19 guidelines. While nearly all of the restaurants and attractions are operating, they’re subject to social distancing and limited capacity in some instances.
In addition, everyone in Monroe County, which covers the 125-mile island chain, must wear masks indoors and outside when social distancing isn’t possible. While the Keys is known for being a laid-back destination, the mask mandate extends to any roofed areas — including the copious number of outdoor tiki restaurants and bars, so be prepared.
“We’re just trying to work with officials and and still provide a fun and enjoyable, typical Florida Keys experience,” said Andy Newman, media relations director for the Florida Keys and Key West
