The red tide map this week shows similar levels to last week. There were medium to high levels in Lee County and high levels in Charlotte County. In Collier County, there appears to be little to no red tide.

Red tide levels went down over the past week in Lee County. However, concentrations are worse in Charlotte where levels have increased.
