Miami-Dade County officials reported a 28% Covid-19 positivity rate on Wednesday, according to data released by Mayor Carlos Giménez's office. The positivity rate is tracked daily by the county.
Giménez's office said the goal is to not exceed a positivity rate of 10%. The county has exceeded the 10% mark for the past 14 days. The current 14-day average is 23%, the data shows.
Remember: A positivity rate is the percentage of people who test positive for the virus of those overall who have been tested.
So, as more and more people are being tested, the focus is shifting to the positivity rate — how many of those tested are actually infected.
