Earlier this week, the Florida Department of Health in Leon County reported that they were expecting a 21-year-old woman to be listed under the county's confirmed cases. However, that woman was never listed under Leon County.

When we reached out to FDOH-Leon, they said that a more thorough investigation revealed then woman actually lived in Miami-Dade County.

FDOH reported Leon County's first technical case of COVID-19 when a Leon County resident tested positve for the disease in another state.
