The Southernmost Point Buoy is seen as the city government takes steps to fight the coronavirus outbreak on March 25, 2020 in Key West, Florida. Most tourists have left Key West as the city closed hotels or short-term vacation rentals and asked restaurants to only serve take-out. Beaches and parks have been closed and starting Friday non-residents may not enter without proof of employment or property ownership in the Florida Keys as city officials attempt to contain COVID-19.
Florida’s tourist spots were among the first to feel the brunt of the coronavirus outbreak. These scenes this from Key West are jarring.
