Jerry L Demings Orange County Mayor

Dear Team,


I wanted to let you know that I will be working from home this week after testing positive for COVID-19. I am fully vaccinated and boosted. Thankfully, I am only experiencing mild symptoms. I will continue to work on county business and participate in meetings from home. I encourage you to get tested if you are feeling sick. That way, if you do test positive as I did, you can isolate and not spread the virus to others.


I am pleased to offer onsite COVID-19 testing for Orange County employees and family members from the same household. Testing is Monday - Friday, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. at Facilities Management Training Room (2010 E. Michigan Street, Orlando, FL 32806). Check OrangeNet for more information.


I will be sure to follow the County‚Äôs COVID-19 Exposure Guidelines to assist me in determining when it is safe to return to the workplace. If you have not already done so, I recommend that you familiarize yourself with this document to ensure you know what to do if you test positive or have an exposure. Thank you for your help keeping our workplace safe. I hope that you and your family remain healthy!

Jerry L. Demings - Orange County Mayor
