Florida Department of Health launches new Covid-19 Community Action Survey
The Florida Department of Health has announced the launch of a new community action survey, StrongerThanC-19, designed to aid Florida as the state continues to fight the spread of COVID-19.
“This cutting-edge tool gives residents the power to unite in the fight to help slow the spread of coronavirus in Florida,” officials said Saturday.
“In addition to helping our state better identify and predict coronavirus trends in Florida, the StrongerThanC-19 community action survey will also guide users through the next ‘STEPS’ of preparedness and prevention measures. This will serve as another crucial instrument in helping to reinforce Florida’s ongoing efforts to fight the spread of COVID-19 across the state,” Gov. Ron DeSantis said in the FDOH release.
“We are asking residents to take two minutes out of their day to take the StrongerThanC-19 community action survey and answer the brief series of questions provided. The responses will be used to help the Department improve the distribution of resources to support healthcare and other initiatives across the state,” Florida Surgeon General Scott Rivkees said.
Florida residents are “encouraged to do their part in helping Florida flatten the curve 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, officials said.
The StrongerThanC-19 community action survey is free to use and can be accessed by visiting: www.StrongerThanC19.com.
