Coronavirus state reports delayed | firstcoastnews.com

The state stressed that this reporting issue is not related to notifying individuals of their test results.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Today’s daily COVID-19 report is going to be delayed, according to the Florida Department of Health.

The state DOH is citing a submission of approximately 400,000 previously-reported coronavirus test results from Helix Laboratory as the cause for the delay. Helix Laboratory is a private lab that is not affiliated with the state of Florida, according to a release.
