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.

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.
