The percent positive rate for new cases of coronavirus in Florida climbed to 8 percent on Monday for the second time in three days.
On Monday, it hit 8.01 percent out of more than 45,000 tests.
The fewer number of tests could be attributed to a number of COVID-19 testing centers shutting down in the wake of Tropical Storm Eta. On Saturday, the state saw nearly 117,000 Floridians take a COVID-19 test and a rate of 6.23 percent.
The state reported a total of 847,821 total cases of the virus, an increase of 3,924 over the day before. The number of new deaths also climbed by 58, for a statewide total of 17,391.
Palm Beach County, Martin County, and Okeechobee County each reported one new death.
