Thank you for finding this information! I know that FL is required to report at least weekly to the CDC but didn’t know where to find the information. It’s criminal that FL has the information but discloses it to its own citizens just every other week. I don’t know what “case rate” or “suppressed” mean in this context, though. Also, I don’t know how to extrapolate positivity rate from this data.

Chris…..the CDC website has a covid tracker with a lot of good info. It will ask for your county….type is Nassau and select the one in Florida. It typically shows weekly data from a Thursday look back. There were 6 hospital admissions last week representing 2% of available beds. Population and vax data is also broken down. It’s worth a quick look on a lazy Saturday morning. Things have been pretty stable and low since March.

Thanks Chris. The stat that sticks out for me is total deaths which was 296 last time I checked. This is more than just a “gentle bruising” as it was described by one of the columnists in the local paper. I wonder why the paper never mentions deaths attributed to covid in any way.

Observer staff, can you continue to use the previous reporting format you used which was a bar chart listing the weekly cases, as well as a history of the previous week’s cases, so we can see the change? Thank you.

I hope you will continue to provide as much information on our COVID situation as you can. It is a great service to the community.

The virus has done another mutation. Will it be booster shots forever without hesitation?

These stats don’t really reflect the level of infection in the community. For example, a person that tests positive but doesn’t report it. ( I don’t have a problem with that). Presence in waste water is a better indicator. I recommend following
