On February 28, 2020 the World Health Organization officials upgraded its global risk assessment of the novel coronavirus' potential for spread and impact from "high" to "very high." The Florida Department of Health (Department) is working closely with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to monitor the current outbreak of COVID-19 and is actively working to ensure that the most up-to-date CDC guidance is quickly and accurately disseminated to local partners.

DOH-Duval used a data-driven approach to identify walk-up COVID-19 testing sites. In partnership with Inspire to Rise, a resource center in zip code 32210, DOH-Duval’s mobile unit brought testing to Jacksonville’s Westside. According to Florida’s COVID-19 Dashboard, zip code 32210 ranks 3rd for the highest number of cases in the county. Walk-up testing was also made available at DOH-Duval’s Central Health Plaza. DOH-Duval’s dedicated healthcare workers tested 200-300 people a day at these locations. These sites bring COVID-19 testing to residents who may otherwise be unable to access testing.

DOH-Volusia has distributed more than 134,000 cloth masks to social service agencies, faith-based organizations and non-profit entities that serve the county's vulnerable populations. The agencies are partnering with DOH-Volusia to help people who are vulnerable to COVID-19 protect themselves and others with whom they come into contact. This population includes agricultural workers, people with physical or developmental disabilities, the homeless, minorities and underserved populations. Masks have also been provided at the agency's pop-up drive-thru test sites in June, and at DOH-Volusia locations.
DOH-Martin went "back to basics" using community bulletin boards to deliver COVID-19 messaging. When staff saw an uptick in cases from specific neighborhoods, a plan was designed to meet the people where they are and install the message boards in areas where they can be viewed by motorists and pedestrians. The bilingual messages provide COVID-19 prevention tips, information about symptoms and the call center phone number for questions. This initiative was supported by residents as well as local business owners.
