A 41-year-old male in Orange County tested positive for coronavirus and has since been isolated, according to the statement. The resident will remain isolated until cleared by public health officials.

In an Orange County Government press conference Saturday, Dr. Raul Pino of the Florida Department of Health in Orange County said that the virus was acquired by the resident outside of Orange County in Palm Beach. The resident’s wife and children are also in isolation, he said.

The Florida Department of Health said an epidemiological investigation is ongoing. In the same statement, the department announced the death of a 68-year-old female Orange County resident who tested positive for COVID-19 in California. The test was done following travel to Asia, according to the statement.
