As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to keep most of South Florida isolated at home, the number of confirmed coronavirus cases in Boca Raton has continued to rise, albeit at a much slower rate than it was a few weeks ago.

The number of confirmed coronavirus cases in Boca Raton has reached 401 as of 10 a.m. on Friday, April 24 according to the Florida Department of Health. Boca Raton remains the city with the 12th most confirmed cases in the State of Florida, and trails only West Palm Beach in Palm Beach County.

West Palm Beach leads Palm Beach County with 478, while Boynton Beach and Delray Beach trail Boca and West Palm with 333 and 308 confirmed cases, respectively.

Palm Beach County still has the third-most confirmed cases in the state, with 2,586. That number accounts for 9% of all cases in the State of Florida. There are 29,356 confirmed cases in the state, with 4,599 hospitalizations and 1,012 deaths.

In addition to reporting the number of confirmed coronavirus cases in Boca Raton and throughout the state, the Florida Department of Health is now also reporting which long-term care facilities have or have had confirmed COVID-19 cases. According to the FDOH website, “Listed facilities may or may not currently have positive cases of COVID-19 in residents or staff.” The list includes 38 facilities in Palm Beach County.

All figures listed above are verified as of 10 a.m. on Friday, April 24 via the Florida Department of Health.
