Where to go: Home, NOW.

Where to eat: At home.

No one can help. As you've found out, this isn't the time to be in Ft. Lauderdale or anywhere except home.

Everything (?) is closed probably because there is a Tropical Storm on the way for the weekend, have you turned on the TV or looked at the news? Oh yeah, and COVID-19.

If you can't get home then go to a supermarket and stock up on supplies, water, food and a flashlight.

You're the one who just said everything you wanted to do was closed.

Why don't you ask the hotel front desk what is open?

I live here, and we are not going out. Local ICUs are full. Storm, possibly Cat 1 coming.

There are plenty of restaurants serving. If you MUST, find one with an outdoor patio seating.

I hope Florida just gets no more than a glancing blow, with no need to open shelters. Just what you need now!

i know now. Weíve been given wrong information.
but what we did wanted to do was closed.
hotel didnít have a concierge but I found someone and we had a lot of fun so far.

i am surprise how hostile everyone here.
you guys USED TO BE happy and helpful and YES hotel people can help but you here usually knew more if you are local...
this place seems took a turn to worse. So sad

Just out of curiosity, where did you travel from and what made you want to go to Florida in the worst spike of the pandemic. Oh, and hurricane.

I was laughing that the Washington Nationals took a vote on if they should travel to covidville to play Miami. 20 players positive. HARD PASS. I live in Fl and have not eaten out once since the end of Feb. It isn't safe. . I am on the coast but nothing is closed but jetty park. They made all the travel trailers and campers leave. I wonder what all the cruise ships will do? They rotate 6 into port and the others stay offshore. They are bringing the astronauts back Sunday but now they will land in the gulf. Exciting.

TLady, did you fly here from another state? This is only a cat1 so you will be find. Road flooding so be careful if driving.

I really WAS interested. People weer still arriving in Florida as the first bands hit. People travel for all kinds of reasons.

And out of another curiosity, did you wear a mask? I am trying to understand people and their reaction to Covid19.

And, of course, one of the reasons being given for the spread of Covid at the moment is people travelling from one area of infection to another and then bringing it back to their area.
