Of Volusia County’s 115 deaths, 65 were residents or staff of long-term care facilities.


Volusia County reported 138 new coronavirus cases Sunday, bringing the total to 7,097, 54 of which are non-residents.

The Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation has suspended the on-premises consumption of alcohol at bars statewide because of the spike in cases; but restaurants remain open.


New Smyrna Beach, Daytona Beach, DeLand and Orange City have made it mandatory to wear face masks. These cities have joined other large areas such as Jacksonville, St. Augustine and Orange County in adding the mandates. Daytona Beach and DeLand are the only cities to impose fines for not wearing masks. Deltona, Palm Coast, Bunnell, Flagler Beach and Flagler County stopped short of mandating masks, voting to strongly encourage residents to wear them. Other Volusia cities are considering mandates.


The state’s positivity rate, calculated by using the total number of people tested for the virus and the total number of people who have tested positive, was 9.28% on Sunday. Over the past month, the daily positivity rate has not fallen under 9%.


The overall positivity rate statewide is 12.03%, which exceeds the 10% target set nationwide.


Nationwide, health departments have directed states to have a positivity rate under 10% to safely begin a phased-in reopening of businesses such as gyms, bars and movie theaters. Florida started Phase 2 on June 5, which allowed bars and movie theaters to reopen. Phase 1 began May 4.


Departments combine this benchmark with hospitalizations and other health factors to determine when states can move on to the next phase.


The World Health Organization has a lower bar and said states must have a steady positivity rate of under 5% for two consecutive weeks to be categorized as having the virus under control.
