since I'm no longer using port 80 only 443. Is closing port 80 a good idea?

It seems to me when I used to do it because port 80 was blocked by isp, some test (SSL labs I think) would mention it, if I got a lower score, it didn't hurt any. I now rewrite all http request to https for the sites that have https. I have a couple that are port 80 only.
