Florida Not Providing COVID-19 Updates On Thanksgiving

A nurse administers a test at a drive-through COVID-19 coronavirus testing station, set up by the University of Washington Medical Center in Seattle.

The state says pandemic response efforts will continue on the holiday, but it won't update public data on case rates.

Floridians will have to wait until Friday to learn more about how the coronavirus is spreading in the state.

The state Department of Health announced it will not update its COVID-19 dashboard or COVID-19 daily reports on Thanksgiving. Updates will resume on Friday.

The department said staff, including lab workers and contact tracers, will continue to work through the holiday.

This is where the state stands as of Wednesday evening.
