More than 93,100 residents have been hospitalized, and with the addition of 58 COVID-related deaths today, 36,133 residents have died. 

Some 9,608,397 Floridians have gotten the Pfizer, Moderna or Johnson & Johnson vaccine.

The CDC says anyone who is fully vaccinated does not need to wear a face mask in public or private, except in medical settings or on mass transportation like planes.
