Health officials in Florida fear the virus is present in nearly two dozen long-term care facilities.
Hospitals and nursing homes transfer patients back and forth. Some Florida hospitals are equipped to handle coronavirus patients, but nursing homes are not. More drive-thru testing sites are popping up to identify who has the disease.
Meanwhile, school has been out across Florida for a week. Public schools have closed down for at least a couple of weeks in the effort to slow the spread of COVID-19. Classrooms are moving online and state tests have been cancelled.
