Quarantine for Florida trip?

We are scheduled to travel to Tampa area sometime in January to have some work done on the MH (remove that ugly nasty plastic film on front)
The question bothering me is with the COVID 'spike' we are going through once again, is there an isolation period for Florida and Ft Myers area in particular?

I expect to have been vaccinated in the next week or so here in Georgia

This was debunked a long time ago yet people keep spreading misinformation and outright falsehoods. It's no wonder many are really confused about what's going on. If this would stop, we would all be better off. I don't understand how anyone believes this stuff. What would be the purpose of doctors and hospitals doing something like this? Stay off Facebook and reality will eventually sink in. Chuck

Please volunteer at your local hospital. They really do need your help right now.

The mask and social distancing are to SLOW it down so the medical community can keep up. In many places hospitals and staff are maxed out.

A couple weeks ago in Mexico City it was reported people are on their hands and knees begging to be admitted, don't think we want that here, so do the right thing.

We were in Navarre FL in Oct. no issues anywhere. we ate out. wore our masks where needed (not everywhere) and enjoyed ourselves. we were also in CO. Granby just outside RMNP. in July. again no issues going out to eat. everyone for the most part wears their mask. I don't like it and don't want to wear it, but unfortunately people have been scared into thinking they work!

We are also planning 2 weeks on the east coast next summer, and then again to FL in October.

Not sure where you live, but here in the Keys you cannot get into any establishment with out a mask and people except for the out of staters and the people from Miami are adhering to it.

We're on the Space Coast and find that most people are wearing masks, social distancing, etc. Yes, FL has had a LOT of cases of Covid, but when broken down into "cases per 100,000 residents", the state is doing better than some.

C'mon down!

“Yet idiots in both the media and the Falderal Government want to put us all in the same little pigeonholes.“

Your insistence that the Federal government treat all Americans differently depending on where one lives troubles me. Should our policy be to let your rural area catchup with urban areas?

Because you disagree with others doesn’t make them “idiots.”

It gets interesting how the Guvnuh's and the media spin the stories.
Total cases in the US is about 19 million or just under 6%.
Urban areas have incidence rates as high as 20%, Rural areas such as where I am in Va have rates under 2%.
Yet idiots in both the media and the Falderal Government want to put us all in the same little pigeonholes.
There is plenty of data available, research where you want to go, and then decide what YOU want to do. Follow local laws, and be respectful of others. Your taking any risk, be they high or low, not some petty beauracrat in a cubicle in DC or New Yuck City.
Be rational,
Be reasonable,

For reasons I do not wish to discuss. FL is not one of the states where I would expect restrictions. Though some campgrounds may have restrictions (Call ahead) I do not think the state will.

Michigan on the other hand ..... Well that's where I live.
