Florida ranks second in nation for COVID-19 testing

On Saturday, the Florida Department of Health announced more than 100,000 Floridians have been successfully tested for COVID-19. Florida is now the state with the second-highest number of tested individuals. Only New York has tested more individuals. 

Governor Ron DeSantis said, “This is an incredible achievement by any measure, and it is all due to the hard work and great sacrifice by Florida’s thousands of health care workers and first responders who are on the front lines of this fight. These professionals will have the full weight of the State of Florida behind them as they continue to devote themselves to keeping Florida’s families safe.”
