Daily COVID-19 statistics have ended

The Florida Department of Health has ceased publishing its daily COVID-19 reports that we have been using to track changes in the number of coronavirus cases and deaths in the state. The change was effective Friday, June 4, 2021, and because of this, Highlands County will no longer be providing updates via Alert Highlands.

If you are interested, the state will be providing a weekly report on Fridays detailing COVID-19 case and vaccine reporting. Follow this link >> floridahealthcovid19.gov

A message from the Highlands County Emergency Operations Center: Please continue to observe social distancing and wash your hands frequently. If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, call your local primary care physician. If you do not have a local primary care physician, call the local Department of Health at 863-386-6040 or Central Florida Health Care at 863-452-3000. Once you have been tested, please self-monitor and self-isolate until you receive your test results.
