LEON COUNTY, Fla. (WTXL) — The Florida Department of Health in Leon County has confirmed that Leon County's newest case of COVID-19 is a 21-year-old woman.

All they can say is that the newest patient is a 21-year-old woman. They did not say where the woman has been treated.

No other information is available at this time.

FDOH-Leon believes the patient will be listed as a Leon County resident, meaning the county's total will go up to nine.

However, they say the dashboard/daily COVID report is based on provisional data and is likely to change as more information about the patient is obtained.
