Q: What should I do if I am experiencing any of the Covid-19 symptoms?
A: If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, call your primary care physician to request testing. Your primary care provider will decide whether you need to be tested and can order a test without approval from the Department of Health. Keep in mind that there is no treatment for COVID-19 and people who are mildly ill may be able to isolate and care for themselves at home.
Only patients who are in respiratory distress need to visit a local emergency center for testing. Your primary care provider should call ahead to notify the emergency center of your need for testing.
If you do not have a primary care provider, please call the TMH Transition Center at 850-431-4470. They can help to connect you with a medical provider or other appropriate resources.

A: In coordination with the Florida Department of Health in Leon County, the County recommends the following sources to assist with community mitigation and preparedness. While health experts are working around the clock to learn more about COVID-19, you can also stay informed as new information becomes available.
