The Florida Keys and Key West once again began to welcome visitors on June 1, albeit under pressure from officials to ensure that everyone takes personal responsibility and precautions to contain any further spread of COVID-19.
A Keys-wide county ordinance requires visitors and residents to wear facial coverings that shield the nose and mouth within business establishments and all public settings that have a roof overhead.
