The State of Florida Issues COVID-19 Updates

Full Story
The State of Florida Issues COVID-19 Updates   TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - The State of Florida is responding to COVID-19. In an effort to keep Florida residents and visitors safe and aware regarding the status of the virus, the Florida Department of Health will issue this update every day, seven days per week.

The elderly and those with underlying medical problems like high blood pressure, heart problems and diabetes are more likely to develop serious illness. Wash your hands with soap & water. Cover your coughs & sneezes with your arm, not your hands. If you're sick, stay at home & avoid crowds.

The Department of Health in Highlands County has recently been informed of calls that look to have originated from our main number, 863-386-6040, asking for personal information. The Florida Department of Health would never call you asking for your address, social security number, or other identifying information, unless we are returning your call. Scammers want to use your data in their fraud schemes, costing you money. Don't let them! If the call seems suspicious, just hang up.
