In an announcement posted to their website, the Monroe County Emergency Management department, which encompasses the Florida Keys, stated that travel to the county would be allowed again starting June 1st.
The latest update states that reservations can start to be accepted by lodging establishments the first day of June. “Monroe County plans to reopen to visitors Monday, June 1 by suspending the checkpoints on U.S. 1 and State Road 905 and allowing lodging establishments to take guests but recommends maintaining occupancies at 50 percent or less for the first few weeks for the safety of their employees and visitors.”
Lodging establishments, which the department defines as “hotels, motels, campgrounds, RV parks, marinas, and other transient-licensed establishments, including licensed vacation rentals,” will have to implement sanitation procedures and cleaning procedures as defined by the American Hotel and Lodging Association and their COVID-19 guidelines.
