Town of Oakland Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Resources

Updated: March 20, 2020

The Town of Oakland is continuing to monitor information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and state health officials regarding Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).

If you have a fever, cough, and difficulty breathing, please seek medical care. Contact your health care provider by phone ahead of your visit and tell them about your recent travel and symptoms. Because the coronavirus disease is thought to spread mainly from person-to-person, we ask that you not enter Town Hall if you have any of these symptoms or have recently traveled to China, Iran, Italy, Japan, or South Korea; returned from a cruise; or traveled from any other COVID-19 affected area in the last 14 days. Instead, call the Florida Department of Health’s Call Center 24/7 at (866) 779-6121. To reach Town staff, call 407-656-1117 during regular business hours.
