The Florida Department of Health in Gulf County announced Tuesday morning that two more positive cases of COVID-19 have been confirmed.

That puts the total positives in the county at 11.

The cases are both travel related. The first is a 70-year-old female Gulf County resident who traveled out of the state. She is isolated and will continue to remain isolated until cleared by public health officials.

The second is a 66-year-old female non-Florida resident who is no longer in Gulf County.

Follow the travel guidance from the CDC at Traveling to visit family may be especially dangerous if you or your loved ones are more likely to get very ill from COVID-19. People at higher risk for severe illness need to take extra precautions.

DOH-Gulf encourages our residents and visitors to continue to take the preventive steps to protect themselves from respiratory illnesses such as COVID-19. Everyone can do their part to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
