The positivity rate in late December, when the situation was considered dire, was 11.08 percent.

Also, according to the Centers for Disease Control which releases Florida data that the Florida Department of Health no longer releases:

ICU bed use is up 7.24 percent over the past seven days, with 20.72 percent of all ICU beds available in Palm Beach County now in use by COVID-19 patients.

COVID-19 hospital admissions in Palm Beach County are up 14.95 percent to 549 over seven days.
