New Florida boating rules require boaters to keep social distance during COVID-19 pandemic
From fun, to fishing to lounging around in the water, residents around Florida are hoping to head out on their boats to get out of the house.
Unfortunately, not everyone has been keeping proper "social distance" and that is why many parts of the state have closed things like, boat ramps.
The new executive order by Governor Ron DeSantis requires boats to remain at least 50 feet apart and no more than 10 people allowed on the boat.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission AND Local Law Enforcement is in charge of enforcing the new rules.
FWC said they have officers out on the water taking time to educate boaters, which is their primary goal.
Below, is an example of what the "new rules" for boating in Florida are, with "Social Distancing".
Watch the Video below, with Officers from FWC, patiently explain it, to a few boaters...
Thank you to all in Law Enforcement, for what you do, every day!
