BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Whether it’s an anomaly or something more remains to be seen, but the Palm Beach County positivity rate jumped nearly 2 points in one day. There was no dramatic change in the number of tests logged or in any other metric. While the numbers are still low, the 2 point gain is notable.
The positivity rate released Tuesday from the Florida Department of Health is 4.95-percent for Palm Beach County. That number is for tests logged on Monday through 11:59 p.m. The positivity rate for tests logged the day before is just 3.09 percent.
The nearly two point jump comes as Palm Beach County moves to “phase 2” of Florida’s reopening plan. It will take several days to determine if this jump is a sign of things to come or just an outlying report.
There are now 1,170 deaths in Palm Beach County with 43,309 confirmed infections. Statewide, Florida reports 11,915 deaths with 650,092 COVID-19 infections.
