Omicron may reach its peak soon in Florida, experts say

Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings will give an update Wednesday on the status of COVID-19.

Some experts say omicron cases could start to drop rapidly soon. 

At the Orange County Commission meeting on Tuesday, the Office of Emergency Management reports that Orange County’s 14-day rolling positivity rate is at 34.89 percent.

Right now, there are about 300,000 positive cases. Experts say data collected from the county’s wastewater could be a prediction of how the pandemic will move next.
