You may have heard the media reports regarding COVID-19, also known as the novel coronavirus.
The Florida Department of Health in Collier County would like to take this time to clarify some things. We are working closely with the CDC to monitor this situation and the current outbreak. There are several hundred FDOH employees who have been working tirelessly since January. This is an evolving situation. We are working to ensure that the most up-to-date CDC guidance is quickly provided to local partners and healthcare providers.
We are prepared and are continuing to coordinate closely with providers and partners to investigate, confirm, and report and suspected cases should they occur. Note: if someone meets the criteria for testing, please
our Epidemiology division at 239-252-8226.
