Coronavirus testing is by appointment only for those who are experiencing symptoms (fever, colds, tussis, shortness of breathing, weakness, body pains, headache, new lack of taste or smell) and are available at the Alachua County Health Department’s East Gainesville from 7 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., all week.
We are deeply saddened by the passing of two Alachua County residents who were battling the flu recently. Their passing is a terrible reminder that flu complications can be fatal and that our families need to take the flu seriously.
The Health Department urges everyone to please get vaccinated against the flu. It takes only a few minutes and can save your life.
We cannot stress enough that if you or someone you know is experiencing any of these symptoms, please come in for an appointment or visit one of our seven walk-in clinics.
We have a series of information updates about Health COVID-19 testing and vaccination requirements.
It would be best if you stayed up-to-date on the most recent health and safety policies to excel in your life.
New Code Of Conduct For COVID-19
The Health Department has released a new Code of Conduct that applies to all adult home daycare facilities.
The same basic rules apply to temporary daycare centres such as child care centres and camps, foster groups, and residential facilities. This code will help protect the health and safety of the children who attend these facilities.
Miami-Dade Department of Health is also working on a new rule to require more vaccinations for influenza and other diseases.
It is important because many children and adults are not vaccinated, putting them at risk of severe illnesses. The Board has already approved the proposed rule of County Commissioners.
Taking a free Corona Virus vaccination stops costly and unpleasant hospitalizations,” said Paul Myers, Alachua County Health Department director. “Taking vaccinated guards yourself, children, mates, and those you get into touch with.”
Because of high need, CoronaVirus testing at the Alachua County is done only by appointments only and particularly for sick sufferers. If you have signs of CoronaVirus, then you have to make an appointment.
