Florida reported a total of 39,000 COVID cases Monday representing the Christmas weekend, continuing the spike in cases over the past week as the Omicron variant spreads across the country.

21,040 cases were reported in Florida on Saturday in addition to 17,955 reported Sunday, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Over the past week that ended Sunday, Florida reported over 124,000 cases of COVID, a 332 percent increase from the 28,841 reported the week prior, according to Florida Today as part of a USA Today network analysis of Johns Hopkins University COVID data from across the country.
