HEALTH ALERT:  HEALTH OFFICIALS ISSUE BLUE-GREEN ALGAE BLOOM ALERT FOR CALOOSAHATCHEE RIVER

LaBelle, Florida (June 9, 2021) The Florida Department of Health in Hendry has issued a Health Alert for the presence of harmful blue-green algal toxins in the Caloosahatchee River. This is in response to water samples taken on June 3, 2021. The public should exercise caution in and around Caloosahatchee River. Residents and visitors are advised to take the following precautions:

  • Do not drink, swim, wade, use personal watercraft, water ski or boat in waters where there is a visible bloom.

  • Wash your skin and clothing with soap and water if you have contact with algae or discolored or smelly water.

  • Keep pets away from the area. Waters where there are algae blooms are not safe for animals. Pets and livestock should have a different source of water when algae blooms are present.

  • Do not cook or clean dishes with water contaminated by algae blooms. Boiling the water will not eliminate the toxins.

  • Eating fillets from healthy fish caught in freshwater lakes experiencing blooms is safe. Rinse fish fillets with tap or bottled water, throw out the guts and cook fish well.

  • Do not eat shellfish in waters with algae blooms.

NEARBY MONOCLONAL ANTIBODY THERAPY SITES

Monoclonal antibody treatments can prevent severe illness, hospitalization and death in high-risk patients who have contracted or been exposed to COVID-19. These treatments are widely available in Florida.

Monoclonal antibody treatments can be prescribed by health care providers to individuals 12 years of age and older who have been diagnosed with COVID-19 or who have been exposed to someone with COVID-19 and are at high risk for severe illness and hospitalization. However, at Governor DeSantis’ direction, there is currently a standing order in Florida signed by the State Surgeon General that allows patients to receive this treatment without a prescription or referral if administered by an eligible health care provider. Such referrals are not required at any of the State of Florida monoclonal antibody treatment sites and treatments are available at no cost to patients.
 

  • Treatment is free and vaccination status does not matter. If you are 12 years and older and are at high risk for severe illness due to COVID-19, you are eligible for this treatment.

  • In clinical trials, monoclonal antibody treatment showed a 70% reduction in hospitalization and death.

  • For high-risk patients who have been exposed to someone with COVID19, Regeneron can give you temporary immunity to decrease your odds of catching the infection by over 80%.

  • For those suffering from the effects of COVID-19 you may try these treatments in lieu of going to the hospital for relief from the COVID effects.
