A Quiet Sanibel

by SC Associate Publisher Chuck Larsen

Sanibel Island has gone quiet in a month that is typically the busiest of the year to prevent the spread of COVID-19, a highly contagious and potentially deadly respiratory illness with senior adults and those with underlying medical conditions like heart disease, diabetes and lung disease more likely to develop serious illness.

Accommodation reservations on Sanibel have been prohibited for 28 days, and existing reservations within that period ordered to be canceled. Public parking lots have been closed and activities cancelled in an effort to deter visitors and groups of 10 or more people from gathering.

This video illustrates the unique season 2020 has become on the island. Stay tuned for more videos of our quiet island.
