"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.”

“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.," said Scott Rivkees, Florida Surgeon General. "The responses will be used to help the Department improve the distribution of resources to support healthcare and other initiatives across the state.”

Survey questions that range from age and residency, to recent travel, to potential COVID-19 contact, it is NOT a symptom checker designed to dispense medical advice.
