    Shops are starting to announce closures, I expect most will be closed by Monday! Scuba Works in Jupiter is closed, I was going to try to book a dive on Wednesday because I can't dive at the Blue Heron Bridge!

    Narcosis in WPB, Starfish in Boynton beach, and Rainbow Reef in Key Largo are closed for at least 2 weeks. Im sure there are or will be others.

    It's amazing to me when so many are telling you not to travel that you'd still be willing to do it. Personally I don't care if you want to get a virus, but potentially bringing it down to FL with you is not okay. Please stay home.

    Hopefully enough fun stuff will get closed so as to force the issue.

    I did see Starship off Boynton today. Saw just two flags in the water. Other than that, besides me there was only 1 other rec. dive boat out today. Conditions were stellar. 78 deg. water and top to bottom viz.
