COVID-19 Response

To help answer questions related to travel safety in Walton County we've created a COVID-19 Travel Updates page that is regularly updated. As of Oct. 13, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis and the Walton County Board of County Commissioner have lifted all restrictions previously passed related to COVID-19, including those limiting events and group sizes, business occupancy below 100 percent, and COVID-related enhanced cleaning requirements.
