HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF

OSCEOLA & POLK INFORMATION

Testing for COVID-19 is available across Osceola & Polk Counties. Tests are limited & will only be administered to those exhibiting severe symptoms such as a dry cough, high fever, & shortness of breath. Please be advised that those requiring coronavirus testing will receive an initial screening & must wait in a common area with other patients also seeking testing. That is why it is highly important that only patients with severe symptoms be tested. You should also note if you have recently traveled or have been around a person with a confirmed case of Covid-19.

If you have health insurance, please first call your healthcare provider. Those without health insurance, please see the relevant information below.
