Distribution Via the Florida Press Assn. (FPA)


Science News Service (SNS) thanks FPA for it's support and distribution of news feeds since the beginning of the pandemic

The FPA kindly distributed all SNS news releases throughout every member news outlet in Florida starting at the beginning of the pandemic. With the advent of Covid-19 vaccines, SNS has changed focus to encouraging the public to closely monitor, and follow, CDC guidance about the SARS-CoV-2 virus and to practice that mitigation guidance at the local level, meaning in accordance with the infection rate of any individual state and in particular, any individual U.S. county at the present time. SNS appreciates FPA's desire to continue receiving Science News Service releases for free distribution and FPA's understanding that the service is no longer available after vaccines became approved.
