Nearly 50 Patients Seen During Department of Health's First Day of COVID-19 Collections

Coconut Telegraph

Department of Health staff today collected specimens from 50 potential COVID-19 patients during the first day of collections at the Bradenton Area Convention Center. Vacancies remain for patients with prescriptions to book appointments over the remaining days of collections.  Manatee County patients who may have COVID-19 should call the Manatee Health Line at 941-242-6649 to speak with an operator about symptoms, travel history and other criteria to determine whether a COVID-19 test is recommended. If testing is recommended, patients are directed to contact their health care provider to get a prescription and then to call DOH Manatee at (941) 748-0747 to book an appointment for the drive-thru testing site. Patients who have booked an appointment should bring the doctor's prescription, a photo ID with name that matches that on the prescription and proof of Manatee County residency (driver’s license, utility bill, etc.). 

Tax Update on Property Tax
Property tax is normally due by March 31 in the year following the year the taxes are assessed. The Florida Department of Revenue (FDOR) extended the final due date for citizens and businesses to pay property taxes in all Florida Counties from March 31 to April 15, 2020.  Payments that are remitted by April 15, 2020, for the 2019 tax year will be considered paid on-time. Additional information can be found in the DOR Emergency Order 20-52-DOR-001 (Property Tax Oversight).
