Law enforcement is reminding you of social distancing, even when you're out on the water. The Lee County Sheriff's Office is enforcing the new executive order that boats need to stay 50-feet apart while on the waterways. Also, recreational vessels can't have more than ten people on board.

Marine deputies are urging everyone to follow the order to help curb the spread of the novel coronavirus.
