The United States entered the Fourth of July weekend against a backdrop of surging coronavirus cases and hospitalizations, with officials and health experts nervously watching to see if the public would heed warnings to limit the size of their gatherings and take other steps to curb the virus.

Florida on Saturday set another daily record for new infections, reporting 11,458 confirmed cases.

Only New York has tallied more cases in a single day, with 11,571 on April 15.
