Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)

COVID-19 Updates

Updated July 9, 2020

To get answers to your questions about COVID-19, call the Broward County COVID-19 Hotline at 954-357-9500, or email COVID-19@flhealth.gov. If you think you have been exposed to COVID-19, call the Hotline BEFORE visiting a doctor or any health care facility.

What is COVID-19 (Coronavirus)?

As the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic continues to impact the community, the Town of Davie will continue to prioritize the health and safety of our residents, businesses and visitors. Our goal is to do all we can to reduce the chances of COVID-19 from spreading and ensure we provide a safe environment for the entire community.

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses common throughout the world, some causing illness in people and others among animals. COVID-19 is a new coronavirus that can cause mild to severe illness.

COVID-19 is a respiratory illness that can spread from person to person.  The virus was first identified during an outbreak in China and has since spread to many other countries, including the United States.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) are actively responding to both the national and global outbreak. The Florida Department of Health is carefully monitoring the outbreak of COVID-19 in Florida and the United States.

Symptoms of COVID-19 Include:

Symptoms that may appear 2-14 days after exposure to the virus:
  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Chills
  • Repeated shaking with chills
  • Muscle pain
  • Headache
  • Sore throat
  • New loss of taste or smell
If you develop any of these for COVID-19 get medical attention immediately:
  • Trouble breathing
  • Persistent pain or pressure in the chest
  • New confusion or inability to arouse
  • Bluish lips or face

What Do I Do if I Have These Symptoms?

If you have a fever, cough, or other symptoms, you might have COVID-19. Most people have mild illness and are able to recover at home. If you think you may have been exposed to COVID-19, contact your healthcare provider immediately.

  • Keep track of your symptoms.
  • If you have an emergency warning sign (including trouble breathing), get medical attention right away.

Your healthcare provider will work with public health and CDC to determine if you need to be tested for COVID-19. We do not provide testing for COVID-19. 

What To Do If You Get Sick?

For the latest information visit:https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/about/steps-when-sick.html

If you get sick with a fever (100.4°F/38°C or higher), cough, or have trouble breathing:

  • Seek medical care. Contact your healthcare provider or county health department unless you are experiencing an emergency.
  • Call ahead before you go to a doctor’s office or emergency room or your county health department.
  • Tell your doctor about your recent travel and your symptoms.
  • Avoid contact with others.
  • Do not travel while sick.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when coughing or sneezing.
  • Clean your hands by washing them with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains 60%–95% alcohol immediately after coughing, sneezing, or blowing your nose. Soap and water should be used if hands are visibly dirty.

If you need to seek medical care for other reasons, such as dialysis, call ahead to your doctor and tell them about your recent travel to an area with widespread or ongoing community spread of COVID-19.

For additional questions on monitoring your health, contact your county health department.

Safer at Home Executive Orders

On March 30, 2020, Governor Ron DeSantis issued a uniformed Safer-at-Home Executive Order for Broward, Palm Beach, Miami-Dade, and Monroe Counties through mid-April [updated].

Governor DeSantis also issued recently an Executive Order which directs all persons who enter the State of Florida from an area with substantial community spread, to include the State of Louisiana, inclusive of those entering the State of Florida by roadways, to isolate or quarantine for a period of 14 days from the time of entry into the State of Florida or the duration of the person’s presence in the State of Florida, whichever is shorter.
