01.03.2020 22:05 ET

Game over boys and girls. After a presumptive case has come back positive in Sarasota, FL (my home town), then this news just broke minutes ago (via WINK-TV):

2 Florida coronavirus cases confirmed, Gov. declares public health emergency

Excerpt:

The Florida governor’s office has confirmed two “presumptively positive” cases of coronavirus in the state Sunday.

A presumptive positive case has tested positive by a public health laboratory and is pending confirmatory testing at CDC

The office of Gov. Ron DeSantis confirms two individuals in the State of Florida tested “presumptively positive” for coronavirus (COVID-19), including a resident of Manatee County and a resident of Hillsborough County.

DeSantis and the State Health Officer and Surgeon General, Dr. Scott Rivkees, have declared a public health emergency in the state.

Add this in with the New York City confirmed case tonight and the situation is about to take a very dire turn.

More from the State Department of Health:

Sadly, this will only accelerate and the panic along with it. Good luck to all of my friends and those who failed to prepare. Our lives are about to change in a drastic manner.
