Anyone seeing tourism impacts to south Florida and the Keys?  Hotels not occupied, restaurants?  
 

I am scheduled to be down in the near future and not sure what to expect

Very difficult to gauge, at least from where I live. We see significant seasonal traffic, with less vacation traffic. I can tell you that restaurants are full on weekends and even weekdays in some places. Not a very scientific gauge, but clearly people are not staying away from congregating with one another.

 

The number of cases in Florida remain small it is Southeast Florida the only reported cases have been in the Miami area.A story about the Florida impact appeared earlier and I’ll see if I can find it and post it when I get to the office.

Much smaller compared to other states.  I’m a bit surprised with Miami being an international city and the tourism 

Seasonal flu falls off during spring and summer months. Florida weather is summer like so there’s that.

The only real COVID-19 issues being discussed in Florida, besides the two fatalities in Hillsborough County,  are group gatherings and cruise ships, aka petri dishes of the sea.  At least one cruise ship is being held off shore for now.  Nothing at all about Monroe County.

some DR on news said it inactivates at 83 deg.  come on summer

All those happy infected jihadists in Iran would disagree with that doctor, it's not exactly known for cool spring days.

From SWFL, the seasonal traffic is unaffected as is the store and other activities. People are talking about the virus,but that's about it here. So far so good ,hope it stays that way.

Come down and relax with us. Nothing that I can see has changed. The snowbirds are in town plus add to that the spring break bunch. 

 

 

Heard of three in collier county, but they are contained.
