In 2019, Florida identified 4,584 new HIV diagnoses. Public health officials estimate that HIV testing rates have not yet returned to the level they were before the COVID-19 pandemic. People who are unaware of their HIV status could contribute to higher rates of HIV transmission, according to Greater Thank AIDS.
