Preventing COVID-19 spread in communities

The CDC recommends individuals and families follow everyday preventive measures:

Voluntary Home Isolation: Stay home when you are sick with respiratory disease symptoms. At the present time, these symptoms are more likely due to influenza or other respiratory viruses than to the COVID-19-related virus.

Respiratory Etiquette: Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue, then throw it in the trash can.

Hand Hygiene: Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds; especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with 60%-95% alcohol.

Environmental Health Action: Routinely clean frequently touched surfaces and objects

The Department of Health has a dedicated COVID-19 webpage for all of the most recent updates on the virus. Here is that link: This remains the best and most up-to-date resource for information and guidance regarding COVID-19 in Florida.
