Filters are available in both flashlight and cell phone sizes and can be picked up at the Pensacola Beach Visitor's Information Center on weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and weekends from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Additional information about local sea turtles and sea turtle-friendly practices are also available. A maximum number of six people are allowed to enter the building at a time.The public is also asked to adhere to the CDC recommended physical distancing guidelines, and everyone is encouraged to wear a mask if possible.
