Tourism in the state has suffered a lull since the extent of the coronavirus outbreak became known in March.  But last week Florida rental owners and businesses that rely on tourism got some much needed good news.

Vacation rental property owners can now accept reservations! That’s great news for those who have invested in such properties and for our communities as well. Tourism is a crucial part of Florida’s infrastructure, and welcoming back beachgoers will help speed recovery efforts. 

In his declaration, Governor Desantis did specify that vacation rental owners must still take steps to reduce the spread of Covid-19. The Department of Business and Professional Regulation has a downloadable PDF that shares their tips, like providing adequate time between bookings for thorough cleaning and using mobile platforms as much as possible.
