Florida Department of Health Updates New COVID-19 Cases, Morning Update

~4,077 positive cases in Florida residents and 169 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 4,246 total** Florida cases.

New Florida cases include:

  • 208 additional positive COVID-19 cases (200 Florida residents and 8 non-Florida residents) reported to the Florida Department of Health.
  • There are currently 4,077 positive cases in Florida residents and 169 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.

More information on a case-by-case basis can also be found here.
