If you live in the Palm Beaches, you need to understand that things are the Coronavirus is still in full effect and things are still dangerous. In fact, Palm Beach County has the most deaths in the state with 14. Broward is second with 12.

As of today, April 1st, there are currently 551 reported cases. The age range of cases is from an infant to 99. There are 286 men and 256 women.

Here are more answers to some of the questions you may be wondering about:

How many cases are in Florida? There are 6,741. Of that, 6,490 are residents. There have been 85 deaths and 857 are currently hospitalized.

How many cases are in the U.S.? There are currently 188,592 total cases, the most in the world, and 4,056 deaths.

What is open in Palm Beach County? Only critical or essential businesses can stay open. Here’s that list.

What restaurants are open? Most restaurants are closed, but these offer take-out and/or delivery. Here’s that list.

What should I do now? Don’t panic. Remember that 80 percent of the cases are mild, 15 percent require a hospital stay and only about 5 percent become severe. If you think you might have coronavirus, call the county health department.

How can I prevent infection? Health officials say the best measures are those you would take to prevent the flu: Wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds or use a hand sanitizer with at least 60 percent alcohol before you eat, after you go to the bathroom and after you sneeze, cough or blow your nose. Alonso said you should keep in mind that the thing that is contagious is a liquid droplet in the air and that the risk would be coming within 6 feet of someone who is infected right after they have cough or sneeze.

What are the symptoms? Cough, fever and shortness of breath. If I think I was exposed, how long would it take me to get sick? Incubation is typically two to 14 days and that’s why authorities are asking people who may have come in contact with an infected person or who traveled overseas to high-risk countries should be isolated for two weeks.
