Milton, Fla.— In response to the governor's directive to take precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the Florida Department of Health in Santa Rosa County WIC office has begun serving most of its clients by phone or through "drive-up" service. At this time, the WIC location in Milton is also temporarily suspending its late clinic on Thursday evenings and moving to a 7:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. schedule for that day. All services will be offered by appointment only. To schedule an appointment, clients may call 850-983-5250.

"At this time, we are issuing the majority of benefits over the phone and serving other clients in their vehicles," said Dianne Pickens, LD/N, MPA, DOH-Santa Rosa's WIC Director. "We are going to move to the 7:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. schedule for Thursday until this is over, then we will go back to our regular schedule. Should we have someone who really needs a later appointment, we will work with them on a one-on-one basis to find something that works for them. We will be as flexible as possible to maintain service to our clients."
