Citywide Public Health Emergency Extended Through July 31

Coconut Telegraph

The City of Sarasota has extended its declaration of a local citywide public health emergency through July 31 following a weekly review, as required by the City Charter, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The emergency order was issued Friday by City Manager Tom Barwin, in consultation with Mayor Jen Ahearn-Koch and City Attorney Robert Fournier. It also authorizes all City boards subject to the state’s Sunshine Law to meet by telephone or other technology, as permitted by Gov. Ron DeSantis, as long as the meeting notice so states and explains how the public can attend and participate.

Friday’s emergency order also issued a temporary permit for mobile cardiac imaging to provide medical services on a doctor’s office property/parking area. Face coverings are now required in all indoor and outdoor public spaces in the City limits, whenever proper social distancing cannot be maintained in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines. The temporary regulation, which took effect July 1, will be in place for 60 days.

A state-run, walk-up COVID-19 testing site is available at Robert L. Taylor Community Complex, 1845 34th St., every day from 8:00am to 5:00pm or until daily testing capacity is reached. Testing is open to everyone, regardless of residency or symptoms, and no appointments are necessary.
