Only 5.3% of the local tests have come back positive so far. Of the 328 tests that came back since this time yesterday, 3% came back positive. (The numbers in the various categories add up to one more than the total number of tests, but since we don’t know which number is incorrect, we’re reporting them as they’re given on the dashboard.)
According to the daily report (note that the data in that report and the dashboard don’t always match up because they are published at different times), there are 107 cases in Gainesville, 8 in Alachua, 5 in Hawthorne, 4 in Newberry, 4 in High Springs, 2 in Tioga, 2 in Micanopy, and 1 in LaCrosse.
