MADISON COUNTY, Fla. (WTXL) — The Florida Department of Health has confirmed the first two positive cases of coronavirus in Madison County.

The positive cases were confirmed in a 23-year-old woman and a 66-year-old woman.

The 23-year-old woman recently traveled to California and is not a Madison County resident. It's unclear if she had contact with a confirmed case before testing positive.
