Cases of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) have now been reported in all states, and some areas are experiencing community spread of the disease. Travel increases your chances of getting and spreading COVID-19. Travel may also expose you to new parts of the country with differing levels of community transmission. And, if you’re infected, your travel may put others at risk– along the way, at your destination, and when you return home. You are responsible for keeping yourself and others safe at all times. CDC recommends you stay home as much as possible, especially if your trip is not essential, and practice social distancing especially if you are at higher risk of severe illness. Don’t travel if you are sick or travel with someone who is sick. Residents from Louisiana, Connecticut, New Jersey and New York are still advised to isolate or quarantine for a period of 14 days from the time of entry into Florida or the duration of the individual’s presence in Florida, whichever is shorter. If you are coming from any other area of community spread, please stay home. Now is not the time to travel for non-essential trips and potentially exposing residents in our communities.
If you must travel for essential purposes, please follow the CDC guidelines at: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/travel-in-the-us.html

Good Morning Franklin County,
Lately we’ve been receiving more calls and emails inquiring about the difference between seasonal allergies and COVID19 symptoms. COVID-19 and seasonal allergies share many symptoms, but there are some key differences between the two. For example, COVID-19 can cause fever, which is not a common symptom of seasonal allergies. The image attached compares symptoms caused by allergies and COVID-19. Because some of the symptoms of COVID-19 and seasonal allergies are similar, it may be difficult to tell the difference between them, and you may need to get a test to confirm your diagnosis.
Please contact the health department for any questions related to COVID-19 or testing.
