Mandatory Mask Order in Everglades Area

To contain the spread of Covid-19, and to keep our residents and visitors healthy so they can enjoy the beautiful Everglades area, there is a mandatory mask order in place in Everglades City and unincorporated Collier County which includes Chokoloskee, Plantation, Jerome, Copeland, and Ochopee.

Masks are required for all indoor venues and when one cannot be at a safe, socially distanced position (at least 6 feet) outdoors. Please show respect for our community by cooperating with this mandate by wearing the coolest mask you can find! Better yet, enjoy the Everglades where being outdoors, and socially distanced is a way of life.
