According to data posted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Florida has broken the record for single-day COVID-19 cases…two days in a row.
Data from the CDC shows that Florida recorded 32,850 cases on December 24th and 31,758 cases on December 23rd. Those two days top the previous high single-day COVID-19 case count set back on August 26th of 27,668.
The data paints a picture of a surging COVID-19 outbreak in Florida, which had less than 2,000 daily cases at the start of December. The cases recorded went from roughly 1,200-1,800 in a day back in the first week of December to now more than 20,000 cases per day since December 21st.
Disney World has not reacted to the surge in cases yet. Their indoor mask mandate remains unchanged since summer, and masks are optional in outdoor areas. Disney has done away with physical distancing almost completely at its theme parks and resorts. Stickers have been removed and plexiglass was taken down as vaccines become widely available in the spring and summer.
