TESTING

The local DOH has provided an updated list of known COVID-19 testing sites in Monroe County. CLICK HERE.

Oral-fluid Swab Testing

(an alternative method to nasopharyngeal swabs)

COVID-19 testing startup Curative is offering walk-up testing at Bernstein Park in Stock Island on weekdays and Founders Parks in Islamorada daily from 8AM-6PM, with more than 500 tests per day available to the public.  Curative offers an oral-fluid swab testing—an alternative method to nasopharyngeal swabs in testing for COVID-19. The observed and directed self-collected oral fluid swab involves having the person cough first, which releases virus from the upper and lower respiratory tract. The virus is then caught in the saliva. The patient then swabs the inside of their cheeks and the roofs of their mouths. Once complete, the patient seals their test within a secure container and returns it to a medical professional to be administered in the lab. Results are sent to patients via SMS text or email. Testing is currently available by walk-up or appointment. Appointments are available at www.curative.com. No insurance necessary. Walk-ups welcome.

Rapid Testing

Keys Area Health Education Centers (AHEC) Executive Director Michael Cunningham said that the 3,000 tests have arrived and will begin being deployed today (January 15). Free rapid testing crucial for anyone who has been exposed and cannot afford to wait for a swab test.

According to Cunningham, the free rapid tests are available for residents of Key West and employees of businesses licensed in the city. In order to find the locations for the tests, visit www.keysahec.org and click on “Key West Rapid Tests.” Appointments are strongly encouraged.

When to Resume Normal Activities if Test is Positive

The Florida Department of Health in Monroe County reminds residents that the “CDC’s symptom-based strategy” is followed when determining when COVID-19-positive individuals can resume their normal activities of work, school, travel, etc.  Persons with COVID-19 may discontinue isolation under the following conditions:

Close Contacts to COVID-19 Case

If you have been in close contact (within six feet for 15 minutes) with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19, or in the 48 hours prior to them showing symptoms, please visit the links that follow from the CDC.

*A negative test does not negate the need to quarantine if you have known close contact to someone who tested positive due to the incubation period of the virus being 2-14 days. 

For more information, visit: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/if-you-are-sick/quarantine.html and https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/if-you-are-sick/steps-when-sick.html.

Federal Sites to Vaccinate Persons Deemed Extremely Vulnerable

On March 3, the State of Florida expanded the criteria for vaccine eligibility to include persons deemed medically vulnerable by a physician.

A form (CLICK HERE) must be completed and signed for an individual to be deemed eligibly vulnerable for a vaccination:

According to the new Executive Order, vaccines for persons deemed medically vulnerable may only be administered by a physician, advanced practice registered nurse (APRN), or licensed pharmacist.

Our local hospitals, including Lower Keys Medical Center, Fishermen’s, and Mariners are not able to provide vaccination for medically vulnerable individuals at this time, and all calls should be directed to a Federally Supported Vaccination Site or Federal Retail Pharmacy.

Vaccines for individuals who are medically vulnerable are only administered at Federally Supported Vaccination Sites or Federal Retail Pharmacies and are not available through registration at MyVaccine.FL.gov or the local hospitals.

Please visit FloridaDisaster.org/Vaccine and scroll to the drop down for “Federally Supported Vaccination Sites” and “Federal Retail Pharmacies.” The Federal Retail Pharmacies in Monroe County are Publix and Winn Dixie. The closest Federally Supported Vaccination Site to Monroe County is Miami Dade Community College. For more information about vaccines in Monroe County, visit monroe.flhealth.gov/vax.

VACCINATION NEWS: The Florida Department of Health in Monroe County wants to reassure residents that the vaccine allocation methodology has not changed. Those who have registered already on Sharecare (myvaccine.fl.gov or called 866-201-7069) will be contacted in the order in which they registered. These individuals will be contacted in chronological order regardless of the group they fit under with the expansion of eligible people under the Governor’s Executive Order.

Additional Updates:

  • The department is still prioritizing healthcare workers with direct patient contact to get vaccinated. Monroe County residents who are healthcare workers with direct patient contact can email dohmonroe@flhealth.gov, indicate they are a healthcare worker in Monroe County, and provide the name of the healthcare facility.
  • Physicians who have deemed patients to be extremely vulnerable may refer to the COVID-19 Determination of Extreme Vulnerability form to fill out. Pursuant to Executive Order 21-47, individuals with a COVID-19 Determination of Extreme Vulnerability form completed by their physician can then be vaccinated by a physician, advanced practice registered nurse, or pharmacist. Those who are deemed extremely vulnerable and do not fall under the executive order eligibility requirements cannot register on the Sharecare system.
  • Residents who have registered on Sharecare can update their information at the Vaccine Assistant at vaccine.healthsecurity.sharecare.com/vaccine. By doing so, the resident stays in control of their contact information, and will get all communication from Sharecare going forward. Making any changes will not affect their place in line.
  • Those who have registered and are waiting on a phone call for an appointment should answer unknown numbers. When answering, the phone system representative will announce themselves as “The Monroe County First Dose Scheduling Line.”
  • For those who have already been contacted to set up an appointment via Sharecare, they can check their appointment time at vaccine.sharecare.com/appt-lookup.
  • For anyone who does not have access to the internet to register, they may call the toll-free line for Monroe County at 866-201-7069 or for TTY (Text Telephone Relay) at 833-990-2908.

Updated return to work criteria for COVID-19 positive tested persons

The CDC and the Florida Department of Health do not advise retesting within three months of anyone who previously tested positive for COVID-19 in order to discontinue isolation.  According to the CDC, recovered persons can continue to shed detectable viral particles at concentrations considerably lower than during illness and infectiousness is unlikely. Therefore, it is advised to use the symptom-based strategy rather than test-based strategy for ending isolation of patients so that persons who are no longer infectious are not kept unnecessarily isolated and excluded from work or other responsibilities.

Florida Launches Statewide Preregistration System for COVID-19 Vaccine Appointments

Today [January 29, 2021], the state announced the launch of a statewide preregistration system to schedule COVID-19 vaccine appointments for individuals 65 and older and frontline health care workers. Individuals can pre-register for vaccine appointments and be notified when appointments are available in their area by visiting myvaccine.fl.gov.

This website will allow individuals who are eligible to receive the COVID-19 vaccine to be proactively contacted when vaccine appointments are available at state-supported vaccination sites. On the site, residents can select their county and submit their contact information. Once appointments are available, individuals will be contacted by phone call, text or email and will be assisted in scheduling an appointment.

Vaccine supply remains limited and appointments may not be available for several weeks in some counties.

Additionally, as part of the statewide registration system, each county has a designated phone number that individuals can call and pre-register if they do not have Internet access. Please find the complete list of numbers by county here. Whether a resident calls by phone or visits myvaccine.fl.gov, their place in line will be reserved reliably using Sharecare software.

If someone does not meet these eligibility requirements below, they will not be able to pre-register.
• Long-term care facility residents and staff;
• Persons 65 years of age and older; and
• Health care personnel with direct patient contact.

Hospital providers, however, also may vaccinate persons who they deem to be
extremely vulnerable to COVID-19.

Please bring proof of residency to any appointment across the state.
