LEE COUNTY, Fla. — The Lee County Public Safety - Emergency Management says they are actively monitoring the tropics.
“While it is too early to determine precisely what impacts the current system will have on Southwest Florida, Emergency Management staff and partners are prepared to respond when needed and ask the public to join in preparing. Have a family disaster plan, build a supply kit, and stay informed, so you are ready to act when needed.” Lee County Public Safety - Emergency Management.
If hurricane shelters are needed, protective measures will be taken to include spacing/social distancing, PPE (masks and hand sanitizer), additional cleaning, and possible screening questions at registration to determine if an individual is ill.
As always, the county encourages the public to have a plan to shelter with friends and family or in a hotel or motel outside of the announced evacuation zone(s) and use public shelters as an option of last resort.
