SUBJECT:      NEW COVID-19 Community Action Survey: Help Florida Flatten the Curve

As Florida continues to work to fight the spread of COVID-19, the Florida Department of Health today launched a new public website, StrongerThanC-19. This community action survey is intended for Florida residents to anonymously answer a brief series of questions which the Department will use to help inform and improve the state’s response to COVID-19.

Each Floridian is asked to do their part to slow the spread of COVID-19 in Florida by spending less than two minutes answering the community action survey questions. Once completed, you will have the option to share the StrongerThanC-19 website with your family and friends via social media or email.

The StrongerThanC-19 media release can be review here for additional information.

Your dedication during these ever-changing times is greatly valued and appreciated. Be assured, Florida is stronger than COVID-19; and together, we can flatten the curve.
