    May 15 - June 15 average 2.5 cases per day positivity rate 4%
    June 15 - July 15 average 16 cases per day positivity rate 12%
    July 7 - July 15 (Last week) average 35 cases per day positivity rate 19%

    These statistics were taken from the Walton County Emergency Operations reports, and I did the math myself.

    Take a knee Jenksy...no need to sit on your butt and criticize me. You can spout off there as well then. I didn’t start the commentary and a couple of you won’t leave it alone, I’m eager to let the commentary and amateur interpretation be on the other thread and this be purely data.

    We all got side tracked. Lets go back to Updates and Data on this thread. I do appreciate all the personal stories. Maybe administrators can move them to the discussion thread.

    Good point - Here you go:

    The state of Florida reported Wednesday it had exceeded 300,000 COVID-19 cases. It became the third state to cross that grim milestone, behind New York and California, and did so only 10 days after surpassing the 200,000 mark on July 5.

    Another 112 Florida residents died Wednesday as a result of the lethal coronavirus.

    Locally, Okaloosa County, Santa Rosa County and Bay County all topped the 1,500 mark for number of cases reported. Panama City alone is now reporting 1,008 cases, while Milton has 628 and Fort Walton Beach has 539.

    As of July 10, the four county region that includes Okaloosa, Santa Rosa, Walton and Bay counties reported 255 COVID-19 cases in persons under the age of 18. Santa Rosa had 108, Okaloosa 61, Bay 49 and Walton 37.

    You question my earlier posting's punctuation:

    Gordo boy, the question marks were my invitation for some other forum user to independently corroborate my conclusions, considering the disparate state COVID data that has been posted in multiple websites and dashboards. If you decide you want to confirm my findings, please do. If you're not familiar with statistical covariance and normalizing statistically small data sets, corroboration is an accepted practice, but apparently not in your skillset. Thank you for the troll.

    As for question marks? What is improper about using question marks??????????

    To those posting personal experiences with COVID, my sympathies and thanks.....

    Sympathy, for what you and yours are going through....

    Thanks, for sharing your symptoms and current conditions with us. In the evening news, it seems only the worst possible outcomes get "newsworthy attention". It is difficult to get real info about those with mild COVID cases. Your postings help fill the gap, and offer some assurance what the worst outcome is not the most prevalent. I find comfort in your comments, and continue to wish you the best and speedy recovery. These are trying times for all of us.....

    Walton County Joint Information Center - COVID-19 Case Update:

    Today, Walton County has 44 more positives for a total of 693.

    A few notes for today's posts:

    1️⃣: All information collected for these reports comes directly from the Florida Department of Health, Department of Health in Walton County and ACHA (Agency for Health Care Administration). Walton County Emergency Management is sharing this information on behalf of these departments, not collecting or evaluating any of this information.

    ▪️ DOH County Reports: https://bit.ly/3fzB1z6
    ▪️ Municipality/ Zip Code Search: Experience

    3️⃣: You may notice a difference in the total number of "COVID Hospitalized" within this report. As of today, the Department of Health will now be reporting from the ACHA reports, which will be reporting ALL COVID hospitalizations within Walton County. For more information, please contact the DOH in Walton County.

    4️⃣: As mentioned previously, with the increase in COVID cases, the Department of Health in Walton County will be suspending MUNICIPALITY/County area reporting. We will still be reporting total countywide positives.

    It is obvious we are inundated by the virus brought by visitors. Thankfully summer season will be over soon.

    Classes begin in Walton County August 10, 2020. Locals should work together to get back to the relatively safe environment we had before rentals were opened. I hope that we can all limit contact and wear masks and focus on the health of of our community.

    It is going to be a challenge with kids in school. We need to be vigilant and monitor our kids and not let them go to school with symptoms.
