We're not up north so let's get back to the OP's question regarding here in The Villages.

I'll make it short and sweet . . .

Radon is naturally occurring in granite -- ALL granite.
Therefore, if you have granite countertops in your kitchen and/or bathroom, your home could test positive for radon albeit not generally at a dangerous level.

Shhhh! I tested the house I bought as I did with every house I've bought. Very cheap to purchase the canister on Amazon then just send it in to have it analyzed. Our reading was Zero. Just being careful is all. Nice question. Better safe than sorry. Due diligence.

Some people must care about it. Both the Home Depot and the new Lowes in Wildwood have test kits in stock for less than $15, about the same price as Amazon.
