Lee County Government has updated its website to reflect the recent gubernatorial Executive Order. Lee County is expanding previously announced closings until further notice and is further adjusting operations.
Website: The county’s website – www.leegov.com/covid-19 – has been updated with information to reflect the governor’s order, including an at-a-glance list of essential businesses. This is designed to help citizens navigate the lengthy list that was included in the order. A link to that detailed list is also available.
Parks: All Lee County parks and Conservation 20/20 preserves will close until further notice beginning tonight, Thursday, April 2, with the exception of boat ramps. County-owned boat ramps will remain open for regular hours at this time.
LeeTran: Lee County Transit (LeeTran) will adjust fixed-route schedules beginning Friday, April 3, to operate a modified Sunday service schedule. LeeTran will operate the modified schedule seven days a week as the county responds to Gov. Ron DeSantis’ safer-at-home order for non-essential services. LeeTran’s Passport service is not impacted by this operational change.
Until further notice, all routes that run on a typical Sunday – except the previously suspended Gold Line and beach trams and trolleys – will remain in operation. In addition, LeeTran will add the following routes to the modified Sunday schedule: 5, 10, 30, 40, 60, 80, 160 and 515.
Riders can access schedules for each route at www.leegov.com/leetran/how-to-ride/maps-schedules

Riders are asked to observe recommendations from the Centers For Disease Control for social distancing.
