    The latest updates from the Santa Rosa County Tourist Development Office / Relax In Navarre
    Santa Rosa County continues to welcome visitors to our unspoiled, uncrowded beaches and charming towns, but we do understand that there is a level of uncertainty surrounding travel at this time.
    Our tourism industry remains open for business and we are ready to welcome visitors who are safe to travel.

    Should you have questions about COVID-19 and your ability to travel, the Florida Department of Health has opened a COVID-19 call center, available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, at 1-866-779-6121.

    Questions can also be emailed to 

    Our community is facing very fluid and extraordinary times in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.   



    The Navarre Chamber Information Center at 1804 Prado Street (behind TC’s Front Porch) will remain open, and we will continue to serve you. I am confident we will find innovative ways to encourage connections and business building in new and technological ways. We will continue to meet one on one and even get out more to you at your business during this time. 


    We are working with our respective committee chairpersons and members to best determine their comfort level in attending committee meetings and will keep everyone informed of scheduled and/or re-scheduled meetings. 


    This is not just about COVID-19, but doing our part to ensure there is capacity at our medical facilities to be able to assist with ALL illnesses. This is not about us as individuals but about protecting people with vulnerable immune/compromised systems and our friends and family members over 60.


    #OpenForBusiness is our new campaign that includes showcasing our members with fun videos and graphics letting everyone know that Navarre Area Businesses are open for business! We will be meeting with our members, but also encourage you to send us a video (one minute or less) letting us know you are #OpenForBusiness


    Please check out the creative post below that one of our members shared on their social media. It’s very creative & our community appreciates it!  


    This is a true test of all our leadership to ensure the Navarre area business community can navigate through this challenging time. This too shall pass, and we will be better and stronger individuals and businesses because of it.


    I am always available to you and would appreciate all input as we navigate these challenging times. Please call, email and stay in close touch. Let's be proactive now and call things off for the short term so that this crisis is mitigated sooner rather than later, and we can get back to business as usual. 


    We greatly appreciate your patience and consideration. My cell is 850.400.0466.  Please call or text me with whatever I can do to help you.
