BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Florida just took a turn for the worse. The Florida Department of Health says 9,928 new COVID-19 cases were logged on Saturday through 11:59 p.m. The death count rose by 29.

There are now a total of 885,201 confirmed COVID-19 cases in Florida with 17,518 deaths. At least 51,900 people have been hospitalized in Florida since the pandemic began.

In Palm Beach County, 731 new COVID-19 tests were logged on Saturday through 11:59 p.m. with no new deaths. There are now a total of 1,622 dead in Palm Beach County from COVD-19 and 58,396 infections.


Florida’s positivity rate pulled back just a bit from Saturday’s near 10-percent. The one day positivity is now 7.57 percent. Palm Beach County, which passed 10-percent on Saturday, is now 6.97 percent.

Neither Palm Beach County Mayor David Kerner nor Dr. Alina Alonso, local director of the Florida Department of Health, have issued statements or advisories since the latest uptick began. Just days before the Thanksgiving holiday week begins, there is no guidance from county officials concerning rules, regulations, ordinances or enforcement. The Palm Beach County mask order remains in effect, and Palm Beach County remains under a state of emergency. Local police departments continue to say they will not enforce individual mask mandates.
