Calling the Health Department Before Calling Your Doctor is no Longer Necessary

This press release published at the request of the Florida Department of Health in Alachua County.

Alachua County medical providers have been kept current on COVID-19 testing criteria, including the availability of commercial lab options. Individuals who have a primary care provider are encouraged to call their doctor prior to going to the doctor’s office with an illness. 

When calling your doctor’s office, you should be prepared to tell them the reason for requesting a coronavirus (COVID-19) test. DO NOT expect to be tested if you do not meet the criteria.

For more information, contact Alachua County Communications Director Mark Sexton at 352-264-6979 or msexton@alachuacounty.us
