Full Story
Tallahassee, Fla. — Each year on December 1, people around the globe observe World AIDS Day. The day provides an opportunity to show solidarity for those affected by HIV and memorialize those who have lost their lives to the disease. This year’s national World AIDS Day theme is “Ending the HIV Epidemic: Resilience and Impact.” Governor DeSantis issued a proclamation in recognition of World AIDS Day, and communities across the state are coming together in support of persons with HIV and to remember those we’ve lost.

Tallahassee, Fla. — The Florida Department of Health recognizes November as Diabetes Awareness Month, a time to raise awareness about diabetes and promote the importance of taking steps to confront diabetes as a critical health issue.

Protect yourself and your community from COVID-19 and other respiratory illnesses such as the common cold and influenza.

Tips to help reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19:

Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing.

The CDC recommends that people wear cloth face coverings in public settings and when around people outside of their household, especially when other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain.

If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.

Avoid close contact with people who are sick, and stay home when you are sick.
