Full Story
Tallahassee, Fla. — This evening, without any advanced notice, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) revised the Emergency Use Authorizations (EUA) for bamlanivimab/etesevimab and REGEN-COV. The revised EUAs do not allow providers to administer these treatments within the United States.

The Florida Department of Health in Gilchrist County is suspending the COVID-19 testing site at the Suwannee River Fairgrounds in Fanning Springs, effective immediately. We will continue to monitor the need for testing and will mobilize clinics as needed. The current weekly testing schedule is as follows: • Wednesdays – Florida Department of Health in Dixie County – 8:30 am. • Thursdays – Florida Department of Health in Levy County – 8:30 am. • Fridays – Florida Department of Health in Gilchrist County located at the Trenton Southside Park – 8:30 am.
