As of Saturday, 140 people were hospitalized with COVID-19 in Volusia County, and 19 people were hospitalized in Flagler County, according to statistics released by the Agency for Healthcare Administration.

While the statistics broke down COVID-19 hospitalizations by county, they did not break them down by individual hospital.

The Department of Business and Professional Regulation has suspended the on-premises consumption of alcohol at bars statewide because of the spike in cases; but restaurants remain open. Disney World in Orlando also reopened.

New Smyrna Beach, Daytona Beach, DeLand and Orange City have made it mandatory to wear face masks. These cities have joined other large areas such as Jacksonville, St. Augustine and Orange County in adding the mandates. Daytona Beach and DeLand are the only cities to impose fines for not wearing masks. Deltona stopped short of mandating masks, voting to strongly encourage residents to wear them. Palm Coast, Bunnell, Flagler Beach and Flagler County approved resolutions to wear masks. Other Volusia cities are considering mandates.

The state’s positivity rate, calculated by using the total number of people tested for the virus and the total number of people who have tested positive, was 11.43%. Over the past three weeks, the daily positivity rate has not fallen under 9%.

The overall positivity rate statewide was 12.41% as of Saturday, which exceeds the 9.57% target set nationwide.

Nationwide, health departments have directed states to have a positivity rate under 10% to safely begin a phased-in reopening of businesses such as gyms, bars and movie theaters. Florida started Phase 2 on June 5, which allowed bars and movie theaters to reopen. Phase 1 began May 4.

Departments combine this benchmark with hospitalizations and other health factors to determine when states can move on to the next phase.

Messages sent to the state last Thursday and Monday about what happens when the positivity rate exceeds 10% were still not answered by Friday.

The World Health Organization has a lower bar and said states must have a steady positivity rate of under 5% for two consecutive weeks to be categorized as having the virus under control.
