During a news conference, Demings announced that the county has produced a heat map indicating so-called 'hot spots' -- zip codes where the virus is most present in the Orlando area.

Among the 53 zip codes in Orange County, 38 have reported the presence of the virus with a high occurance in:

  • 32801

Even if you do not travel in any of those zip codes, Demings cautioned that no resident should be deceived into thinking that it is not countywide at this point.

Starting at 12:01 a.m. on April 3, a statewide 'stay-at-home' order takes effect through April 30. Governor Ron DeSantis made the announcement in an effort to help slow the spread of the coronavirus.
