After a 'processing mistake' in state data, South Florida is at high COVID risk.

All three South Florida counties have high COVID-19 levels, despite CDC statistics suggesting medium levels.

Levels vary greatly. The CDC advises that those in high-risk locations wear masks inside.

A "data processing mistake" left Florida's per capita case rate blank in every county, a footnote adds. 

Community transmission levels are calculated using numerous parameters, including hospitalizations and testing positive.

Broward, Miami-Dade, and Palm Beach Counties should have been in the high CCL group, the CDC notes.

Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami-Dade counties all have optimism percentages above 17%, the most since early February.
