The Florida Department of Health will no longer release daily reports of COVID-19 cases and other data and will instead publish the information weekly.
The change went into effect immediately Friday. You can view the weekly report here.
Weesam Khoury, a Department of Health spokesperson, cited Florida's increasing vaccination and decreasing new case positivity rates.
"More than 10.3 million Floridians have been vaccinated – accounting for more than half of Florida’s eligible population. Eighty-five percent of Florida’s seniors are vaccinated," Khoury said in an email. "Florida’s case positivity has been below 5% for more than three weeks. Cases in seniors ages 65 and older are the lowest since early in the pandemic.
"Infections and disease control is a core function of the Florida Department of Health. The department will continue to adapt and respond to COVID-19 to protect public health statewide."
On Friday, the department released a 9-page report on data for the week of May 28 to June 3. The data includes only Florida residents and includes vaccination numbers.
