Hillsborough COVID 19 Cases Stay Lower, But a Bump in Teens and Twenties

TAMPA -- Most of the numbers are good in the latest update on COVID-19 in Hillsborough County. But Dr

Douglas Holt with the state health department says cases among 15-24 year olds are up, after

schools and colleges reopened. There was also a spike among teenagers because of a testing push in

that age group.

Holt says 14-day positivity rates remain low but have plateaued, going from 6.8 to 6.7 percent.

Commissioner Sandra Murman said it's time to start planning for an "endgame" to the coronavirus emergency.

But most other commissioners said it's not time yet.
