Coronavirus update from Florida DOH - 155 now infected


Tallahassee, Fla. — Today, in the state’s ongoing efforts to provide transparency and clarity regarding COVID-19, the Florida Department of Health announced the launch of a new COVID-19 Case Dashboard however the data shown on the Dashboard seems to be 24 hours old. To keep Florida residents and visitors safe, informed and aware about the status of the virus, this dashboard will be updated twice daily.


As of noon, March 16, 2020, there are 155 total Florida cases:

  • This includes 19 additional positive COVID-19 cases (14 Florida residents and 5 non-Florida residents) were reported to the Florida Department of Health.
  • There are currently 137 positive cases in Florida Residents and 18 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.
