Okaloosa County has again surpassed Santa Rosa County in the number of diagnosed cases of COVID-19. The county has jumped to 271 cases as of Monday morning, according to the Florida Department of Health.

The number represents less than 0.5 percent of all cases statewide and Okaloosa has just five people presently hospitalized for treatment of the potentially deadly virus. None of those hospitalized are occupying an ICU bed or are on a ventilator.

Santa Rosa County’s COVID-19 count jumped by four overnight to 258, and Walton County rose to 131 diagnosed cases.

Results from week one of drive-through testing in Crestview tallied 331 tested and two positive results with one “no-result,” according to information provided by county Public Safety Director Patrick Maddox.

Destin’s second week of testing totaled 335 tested. One Okaloosa County resident and one non-county resident tested positive, Maddox reported.

Another 172 were tested in Baker with three county residents testing positive. Fort Walton Beach tested 442 for the week and received 15 positive results.

Maddox attached a reminder to his daily Okaloosa County COVID-19 update that it is important to remember – “more testing will equal more cases, but the positivity rate is the important factor to watch.”

The Health Department reported 64,904 COVID-19 cases Monday morning and 2,712 deaths. That’s 966 new cases and 12 new resident deaths.
