As Predicted, Holiday Brings Slight Decline Due To Closed Testing Sites. Total Resident, Non-Resident is 10,059.
BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Many testing sites were closed statewide on Friday which led to a slight decrease — if you can call it a decrease — of new COVID-19 cases logged on Saturday, July 4th. The Florida Department of Health says 9,999 new Florida resident COVID-19 cases were added to the books on Saturday, July 4th. Adding non-Florida resident cases, the total is 10,059.
The percent positive of the new cases — a key metric — rose to 15.04 percent.
In Palm Beach County, 686 new cases were logged through 11:59 p.m. on July 4th. The percent positive of the new cases is 13.9 percent.
Statewide, there are now at least 200,111 confirmed cases of COVID-19 with 3,731 resident deaths and 101 non-resident deaths.
In Palm Beach County, there are at least 16,836 confirmed COVID-19 infections with 542 deaths.
Expect numbers to decline during the week as the closures of testing sites for the July 4th holiday weekend potentially result in fewer tests to record. The percent positive rate will remain a key metric during the week.
