Delta and American Airlines have added daily flights at Orlando Melbourne International Airport
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Businesses have been back open for a few weeks now and we are hearing of more COVID cases in the county and the key is being smart and safe while encouraging our guests to enjoy our properties, facilities and outdoor amenities.
Please make sure you are doing your part to keep your business safe and following CDC guidelines – the last thing anyone wants is another shutdown.
That being said, early indications are the last two weeks of May and the four weeks of June were showing steady improvement over April and early May.
We are continuing to promote the destination as long as the government keeps us open so we hope that trend will continue. Stay safe and let’s keep getting back to business!

Step by Step Florida Opening
■ July 2, 2020 Press Release “Governor Ron DeSantis and the Florida Surgeon General are reminding all Floridians to protect the vulnerable by avoiding the Three Cs: Closed Spaces, Crowded Places and Close-Contact Settings and by wearing a mask in public:
■ Closed Spaces. Avoid closed spaces with poor ventilation that could allow contagious droplets to linger in the air.
■ Crowded Places. Avoid crowded places with many people nearby; the greater the number of individuals in an area, the greater the chances of COVID-19 spreading from person-to-person.
■ Close-Contact Settings. Avoid close-range conversations and stay at least six-feet from others.”
Effective June 26, the Department of Business and Professional Regulation has suspended on premises consumption of alcohol at bars statewide.
