Florida Department of Health Updates New COVID-19 Cases, Announces Two New Deaths Related to COVID-19, 11 a.m. Update

~1,583 positive cases in Florida Residents and 99 positive cases in non-Florida residents~

TALLAHASSEE — To keep Florida residents and visitors safe, informed and aware about the status of the virus, The Florida Department of Health has launched a COVID-19 dashboard that will be updated twice daily. Today, as of 11 a.m., there are 1,682 total** Florida cases.

Two people have died who tested positive for COVID-19 in Pasco and Sarasota counties.

New Florida cases include:

  • 215 additional positive COVID-19 cases (204 Florida residents and 11 non-Florida residents) reported to the Florida Department of Health.
  • There are currently 1,583 positive cases in Florida residents and 99 positive cases in non-Florida residents.

Florida recently partnered with private laboratories around the state to expand COVID-19 laboratory testing capacity. This partnership will increase the number of tests conducted each day and ensure Floridians receive the critical health information they need in a timely manner.

Expansion to private laboratories changes the COVID-19 testing landscape in Florida. Private laboratories are running tests as they receive swab samples from practitioners. Testing and reporting times vary among commercial and DOH laboratories. Demographic information may be updated during investigations. These twice daily reports reflect the state’s efforts to accurately and transparently share information.
