Major errors in COVID testing reports

The Florida Department of Health is looking into incorrect testing reports after some Florida testing sites showed a 100% positivity rate--meaning every single person who got tested at that site was positive for the virus. The statewide average of positive COVID tests hovers around ten percent, so how are some labs seeing 100%?

FOX35 in Orlando is digging into the story, and has received updated (corrected) numbers from several labs, while still waiting to hear back from others.

If it turns out that these high positivity rates were reported in error, that would be good news! It would mean that the scary, super high number of positive cases is actually untrue, and that the real numbers are much lower. More information is expected to come out of this story.
