By Ryan Yousefi

With COVID-19 cases spiking all around the state, Tamarac Talk continues providing updates from the Florida Department of Health.

On January 12, there were 157,923 COVID-19 tests conducted in Florida. Of the test administered, 19,685 returned positive. Of the positive cases, a record 13,680 were new cases.  Of the current COVID-19 cases in Broward, six-percent are residents or long-term care residents or staff. 

There were 3,994 positive COVID-19 cases in the City of Tamarac — an increase of 98 positive cases since we last updated readers on January 10. This past week, county officials announced Coral Square Mall would become the sixth vaccination site in Broward County. Residents are welcome to this location by appointment only. 

Statewide in Florida, there have been 1,517,427 positive COVID-19 cases to date. Florida is one of only a handful of states in the U.S. to have recorded over 1 million COVID-19 cases, with only California and Texas registering the most cases in the country.
