Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The Juvenile Welfare Board continues to work closely with the Florida Department of Health, Pinellas County Government, Pinellas County Schools, and others during the pandemic to support our funded agencies and to share resources for children and families.

Preventative Measures

The CDC recommends the following preventative measures:

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick, or stay home if you are sick or have symptoms (fever, cough, shortness of breath).
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for 20 seconds, or use a hand sanitizer with 60% alcohol.
  • Practice social (physical) distancing, staying at least 6′ apart from others.
  • Wear a mask, face covering, or face shield when in public or when social distancing is not possible.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth, and cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
