A 72-year-old Flagler County woman tested positive for COVID-19 and was recorded as Flagler's first official positive case on the Florida Department of Health's COVID-19 Data and Surveillance Dashboard the evening of March 22.

She has been hospitalized, and it is not known if her case is travel-related, according to the website.

Another woman who tested positive for COVID-19 and is being treated at AdventHealth Palm Coast is not listed on the state's website as a Flagler County case because she is a resident of Volusia County, and cases are listed by county of residence. 

Around the state, officials had recorded 1,007 positive cases, of which 937 were Florida residents. The counties with the highest numbers of cases were Miami-Dade (227 cases), Broward (217 cases) and Palm Beach (72).

Closer to Flagler County, St. Johns has 16 known positive cases, Volusia 14 cases, and Putnam two.
