Pinellas, Hillsborough, and Pasco counties under MASK MANDATE

(link to news article provided by FOX 13 local news)



 

 

Tampa Bay has always been a place of connection. At our core, we’re about bringing people together, making them feel vibrant and alive. Out of darkness comes light—our powerful Florida sunshine that helps make this one of the best destinations in the world. But right now, we’re asking everyone to come together by staying apart.



 

IMPORTANT

The Pinellas County Board of County Commissioners have issued an executive order requiring everyone in the county to wear face masks while indoors at public businesses effective Wednesday 6/24/20.

According to the executive order, residents must wear face-covering that covers the nose and mouth and remains affixed or a face shield. A cloth face covering, or mask, maybe factory-made or sewn by hand and can be improvised from clothing or other household fabric items.

Exceptions to the order include:

  • The mandate cannot conflict with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
  • It does not apply if a person is strictly adhering to social distancing and there are 10 or fewer people in the location who are also maintaining social distancing.
  • It does not apply to governmental entities such as schools, courthouses or city halls, although those entities are encouraged to develop procedures to protect employees and the public.
  • If a person is under age 18, that person’s use of a face covering is left to the discretion of that person’s parent, guardian or an accompanying adult.
  • Religious rituals such as various forms of singing are permitted provided that social distancing is strictly maintained.
  • Exercising while social distancing, such as in a gym, is permitted without a face covering.

If you do not have a mask, one will be provided to you by the resort.

We are monitoring the situation closely and will continue to modify our processes to maintain the highest levels of cleanliness at our properties.
 
We look forward to exceeding your expectations and continuing to deliver an unsurpassed vacation experience in a warm, welcoming and safe environment.

WHAT WE KNOW RIGHT NOW

COVID-19 updates are coming quickly, experts tell us to stay calm but take precautions. From the beginning we have been told five things every traveler should do to stop the spread of COVID-19 but, as the number of cases continues to increase, we’re all looking for even more ways to travel safely rather than cancel our trips.
 

 

WHAT THEY ARE SAYING

  • Beaches: open Monday, May 4th.  Social distancing strictly enforced. Each city will decide on their parking availability.
  • Vacation rentals are OPEN 
  • Florida is shutting down bars in an effort to slow the spread of coronavirus. The announcement did not come from the office of Gov. Ron DeSantis (R), but from Halsey Beshears, the secretary of the agency that regulates Florida bars. Beshears said that on-premise alcohol consumption will stop immediately, effectively moving the state back to an earlier phase of reopening. Some bars are opting for to-go orders. Further updates to come. CLICK HERE 
  • Gov. Ron DeSantis announced Wednesday, June 3rd, that the majority of the state would take another step in his reopening plan and move to phase two on Friday, June 5th.

    Under Phase 2:

    • Restaurants can offer bar-top seating with appropriate social distancing
    • Movie theaters, concert houses, auditoriums, playhouses, bowling alleys and arcades can operate at 50 percent of building capacity
    • Retail establishments can operate at full capacity with social distancing and sanitization protocols
    • Gyms can operate at full capacity with social distancing and sanitization protocols
    • Personal services, including tattooing, body piercing, acupuncture, tanning and massage, to operate with appropriate safety guidelines as outlined by the Department of Health
    • Pari-mutuel facilities to operate with a written request from the County Mayor or the County Administrator and after approval from DBPR

     

    The Governor has also released Executive Order 20-139 that further outlines details. View Governor’s Presentation on Phase 2 guidelines including responsible individual activity, businesses restricted by previous executive orders, other affected business services and medical procedures.

HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF WHILE FLYING

Wash your hands at every opportunity. If you don’t have access to soap and water, use a hand sanitizer which contains at least 60% alcohol. Avoid touching your face. And, as soon as you sit down, wipe down everything!
 
The technique of washing is important:
 
1) Wet your hands with clean running water
2) Remove them from running water or temporarily turn it off and lather them with soap by rubbing them together.
3) Soap up your hands, between your fingers and under your nails, and scrub for at least 20 seconds.
4) Then, rinse your hands well under clean running water.
5) Dry your hands using a clean towel (not a communal one) or air dry them

EXTRA PRECAUTIONARY
STEPS TO TAKE

Liberte is taking additional measures to ensure all rentals are cleaned thoroughly during this time. If you are staying in another property outside of Liberte, there are some additional steps you can take to feel more at ease. Wipe down surfaces with a disinfecting wipe and increase your hand hygiene. An extra safety precaution might be to bring your own pillowcase (which you should then pack up in a separate plastic bag and launder immediately when you get home) and disinfect light switches, alarm clocks, phones and remote controls.
 
Probably the most important thing in the room is not to drink from any of the glasses or ceramic mugs. You just have no idea when they were washed or who touched them last. When it comes to COVID-19 and other viruses that are similarly transmitted, the key is to always think first about your hands and then your face and your mouth and how something has the potential to get there.
