As of late 3/19/20, the State of Florida reported:

One person has died in Duval County who had previously tested positive for COVID-19. New Florida cases include: • 42 additional positive COVID-19 cases (33 Florida residents and 9 non-Florida resident) reported to the Florida Department of Health. • There are currently 393 positive cases in Florida residents and 39 positive cases in non-Florida residents. Florida recently partnered with private laboratories around the state to expand COVID-19 laboratory testing capacity. This partnership will increase the number of tests conducted each day and ensure Floridians receive the critical health information they need in a timely manner. Expansion to private laboratories changes the COVID-19 testing landscape in Florida. Private laboratories will run tests as they receive swab samples from practitioners. Testing and reporting times will vary among commercial and DOH laboratories. Demographic information may be updated during investigations. These twice daily reports reflect the state’s efforts to accurately and transparently share information.
