That's a moving target as interstate quarantine regulations

You cannot count on marina websites to be up to date. You have to call. Some fuel dock
hours have changed. You may be able to get fuel
but not water
or pump-outs. Multiple stops really limit progress.
Rental car availability is often limited and getting to a car can be a challenge. Courtesy cars are often not available. My recommendation is to provision based on what will fit as opposed to what you ordinarily buy. Snowbirds are going to learn to provision for passages. Again - more phone
calls. The good news is that more groceries are delivering and many larger chains have good websites to place your order and choose a delivery
window. More planning ahead.
I'm not aware of any current
restrictions to being out on the water
. That could happen again.
Law enforcement is certainly present and not all are following mask and distancing protocols. That can be awkward.
