Meters for Customer Pick-Up and Delivery

We're also joining our partners, including Orange County Government, to remind residents and visitors of the simple steps that they can take to help prevent the spread of respiratory diseases like the flu and COVID-19, including avoiding close contact with people who are sick and washing hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. 

CDC’s recommendations to reduce your risk of exposure: 

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing. 

We encourage you to stay informed by following the CDC and Florida Department of Health websites and social media accounts. There you will find new information, frequently asked questions and the current status of cases nationwide.
