    From the Florida Department of Health (DOH), August 5, 2020

    Beware of contact tracing or testing scams. Our colleagues at the health department in Jefferson County shared that some of their residents are getting fraud calls from someone claiming to work with them. The person is asking for personal information such as a Social Security number. Never provide personal information when someone calls regarding COVID-19 tests or contact tracing! Public health will only ask for your date of birth for confirmation if you have been tested. If a call or text seem suspicious, ask for the caller's name and the name of the supervisor. Hang up and give us a call at (727) 824-6932. Our staff can confirm if the caller is a state employee.

    ADA ANNIVERSARY


    July 26 marks the 30th anniversary of the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990. The ADA is a comprehensive, wide-ranging civil rights law that protects people with disabilities from discrimination in employment, state and local government services, public accommodations, transportation and telecommunications.

    The City of St Petersburg has long committed to the goals of the ADA. In 1972, before the ADA was signed, the City created the Committee for Assistance to the Physically Impaired, and in 1995 the City established the Committee to Advocate for Persons with Impairments (CAPI), which is still active today. 

    Equal access, participation and enjoyment for people of all abilities is vital for a thriving St. Pete. The City offers many programs and resources for people with disabilities, like accessible boat ramps at the Municipal Marina, wheelchair lifts at municipal pools, beach wheelchairs, adaptive golf carts at municipal golf courses and assistance with taking garbage cans to the curb.

    Additionally, qualified applicants can earn loans or grants through the Housing Rehabilitation Assistance Program to make modifications to the home to make it accessible for persons with disabilities. More information can be found at stpete.org/housing.
