COVID-19 Prevention Messaging Goes Mobile in Martin

By Renay Rouse

June 02, 2020

The Florida Department of Health in Martin County is taking COVID-19 prevention messaging on the road. The Department recently rolled out a box truck wrapped in custom graphics that promote healthy habits, while traveling county roadways.

The brightly wrapped truck features reflective artwork and bi-lingual messages encouraging residents to Wash Your Hands, Stay Home When You Are Sick and Wear A Face Covering In Public. As a working delivery vehicle, the truck is on the road daily for about eight-hours, covering more than 200-miles.

“We often have to get creative with our communication, so people will pay attention to the message.” said Carol Ann Vitani, Health Officer for the Florida Department of Health in Martin County. “The truck is a great solution for COVID-19 prevention awareness because it provides a high-profile way to deliver a basic, yet essential public health message.”

The truck will remain in motion in and around Martin County for about a month, reminding residents about what they should do to protect themselves and their loved ones from the COVID-19 virus.
