Full Story
The State of Florida Issues COVID-19 Updates TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - The State of Florida is responding to COVID-19. The state is in Phase 2 of Florida’s reopening plan. The Florida Department of Health is issuing this update once per week. However, DOH will continue to update the COVID-19 dashboard and post the state report daily.

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.
