The Florida Department of Health launched a new community action survey, StrongerThanC-19, designed to aid Florida as the state continues to fight this outbreak. This tool gives residents the power to help slow the spread of coronavirus in Florida by anonymously answering questions that range from age and residency, to recent travel, to potential COVID-19 contact.

The survey is designed to gather information to help the Department track and slow the spread of COVID-19 in Florida; it is not a symptom checker designed to dispense medical advice. It is free to use and can be accessed by visiting: www.StrongerThanC19.com. Please feel free to share this information. Read the full announcement
