BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Florida’s positivity rate is the highest it’s been since February 21st.

The report comes as images of thousands of maskless Spring Breakers in Miami fuel fears of massive COVID spread, and we are sorting through photos showing thousands on Atlantic Avenue in Delray Beach not wearing masks over the weekend.

The Florida Department of Health just reported that Sunday’s tests results revealed a positivity rate of 6.69 percent. It has risen steadily since March 18th when it was just 5.02 percent. Over the past month, the positivity rate has ranged from a low of 4.84 percent to 6.22 percent yesterday. The 6.69 percent is an ominous sign.

In Palm Beach County, the positivity rate is 6.28 percent — also a recent high.

Statewide, there are now 2,011,211 COVID-19 cases with 32,779 deaths.

In Palm Beach County, 128,321 people have tested positive for COVID-19. At least 2,598 have died.
