  • New confusion or inability to arouse
  • Bluish lips or face
*This list is not all inclusive. Please consult your medical provider for any other symptoms that are severe or concerning.
IF YOU GET SICK FOLLOW DIRECTIONS BELOW DO NOT GO TO
DOCTOR OR HOSPITAL
  • Stay home and call your doctor.
  • Call your healthcare provider and let them know about your symptoms. Tell them that you have or may have COVID-19. This will help them take care of you and keep other people from getting infected or exposed.

TAKE NOTE, THINGS ARE CHANGING, COVID-19
IS NOW ON OUR DOORSTEP! 
At this time Highlands County, Polk, DeSoto, Hardee, Glades, & Okeechobee Counties are clear of COVID-19. We now have only 5 counties clear on our borders, Osceola (8 cases) & Charlotte (1 case) also touch Highlands county borders. Things are changing rapidly, COVID-19 is on the move.
If you think for one minute the precautions that HTA is taking are wrong, you will surely think twice when we start to see numbers in Highlands County, Consider this; those cases will be concentrated in Sebring, Avon Park, and Lake Placid.
