A Message from Jim Gray
Orlando City Commissioner
District 1
Every February, Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer and City Commissioners celebrate Black History Month by highlighting the lasting contributions and positive influence of Black Americans in the Central Florida community.

There will be a series of virtual workshops and panel discussions which will highlight this year’s theme:
The Black Family: Representation, Identity, and Diversity.

The Florida Department of Health in Orange County is managing the distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine in our community.

From the Florida Department of Health in Orange County: COVID-19 vaccine appointments are currently full and signups are closed. When appointments re-open, the Dept. of Health will share. Stay updated at ocfl.net/vaccine and on Orange County's social media accounts.
Building Community in a Socially Distance World

This workshop will share ways to keep your neighbors engaged in your association while continuing to build a sense of community as we continue to social distance.

Saturday, February 13th
9:00am - 10:30am
The City of Orlando is actively responding to the threat of COVID-19 and is working closely with the Florida Department of Health, who in turn is working closely with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Find additional resources and updates on city services on the City of Orlando's COVID-19 webpage. You are encouraged to first seek assistance via phone, online or through email.
Orange County Health Services has extended their free rapid testing. They will be offering both molecular testing (PCR tests) which will render results in approximately 48 hours, and antigen (rapid) testing which can produce results in about 15 minutes.
