Stronger Than C19

Florida residents are encouraged to do their part in helping Florida combat COVID-19 by anonymously answering questions that range from age and residency, to recent travel, to potential COVID-19 contact. The StrongerThanC-19 community action 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. The StrongerThanC-19 community action survey is free to use and can be accessed by visiting: www.StrongerThanC19.com.

The free StrongerThanC19 app is available to both iOS and Android users and can be downloaded from the Apple or Google app stores.

Southwest Florida Emergency Relief Fund

The Southwest Florida Community Foundation, in partnership with the United Way of Lee, Hendry, Glades and Okeechobee, has created the SWFL Emergency Relief Fund to receive donations to help meet needs in our community related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
This relief fund will provide flexible resources to 501(c)3 organizations in our area working with those who are disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak. Click here to donate.
