Been trying to get an idea of the cases in Key West have been steadily rising like the other parts of Florida or is it more of an isolated area that has not been impacted as much?

Have reservations for vacation plans there in three weeks. Are the restaurants operating under a carryout only?

Monroe County, where The Keys is located, was arguably the most strict county in the state, cutting off the keys to non-residents in March. You know, a "draconian measure" that contributed to Florida's success in May. They have a mask mandate through summer 2021.

There's only about 70,000 people in Monroe county....
...compared to Miami metro's over 6 million

we didn't make that big of a contribution

Disney, Universal, Seaworld, Orlando's convention industry (Top 3 in the country); Cancelled or closed March 15. The beaches get the media attention during Spring Break, but Orlando is king for visits. 10th busiest US airport, #1 in Florida.

Numerous stay at home orders by individual cities or counties in Week 3 or 4 of March. The April statewide order was a bow to national pressure.

Totally coincidental, but Florida schools having K-12 Spring Break in March instead of one traditionally tied with an April Easter helped us.

But in the spirit of me not hijacking this post and saving the debate for the general COVID threads, with my apologies to the OP, the Keys did what they had to do and did a good job of containing the virus. Given the remote location, it would have been devastating if impacted people could not get the medical attention they needed and had to hop on airplanes or helicopters to get treatment on the mainland.
