Vacation Rentals Approved to Rent beginning June 1, 2020
Monroe County Administrator Roman Gastesi received notification that Monroe County’s plan for reopening vacation rentals was approved by the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation (DBPR) secretary per Governor Executive Order 20-123. Monroe County licensed vacation rentals can resume on June 1 along with hotels and other lodging establishments providing property owners and managers enhance protective measures for reservations, cleaning requirements, and new protocols for vacation rental housekeepers and property staff.
Under these new guidelines, reservations from COVID-19 hot spots identified by the Governor are to be avoided. COVID-19 identified hotspots according to the governor are New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and Louisiana. Reservations from international guests will not be allowed until further notice.
House cleaning procedures should conform to the new enhanced standards issued by the American Hotel & Lodging Association, CDC, and DBPR. In addition to the enhanced standards, remote check-in and check-outs will be made available, along with printed copies of CDC regulations and guidelines and printed copies of local COVID-19 regulations and restrictions and signage highlighting the new cleaning protocols will be placed on the property. Cleaning and property staff will wear facial coverings and gloves and practice social distancing from each other while on property and maintain a schedule that does not coincide with the guest’s arrival or stay.
