To be more precise, there are 9 cases of Covid19 in The Villages in Sumter County. The other Sumter county case is in Wildwood. Perhaps that Wildwood case is the man in Monarch Grove.

In Lake county there are 14 cases: 5 cases in Leesburg, Clermont has 2, and one each in Sorrento, Eustis, Mascotta,,Lady Lake, and Groveland with and additional case unspecified. The Lake county portion of the Villages also has 1.

Marion county has 4, 1 in Ocala, 1 in Belleview, and the other 2 unspecified.

I suppose the numbers are an indicator depending which numbers and who is looking for whatever.

While perhaps an unreasonable request, it would be helpful to know a little about where they have been, just come from, etc.

For example. Prince Phillip has tested positive for the virus. Should be easy to track where he has been for the last two weeks.

The additional information would/should be helpful to determine actions to take or not.

1439 cases in Florida TV adds 28 total 1467. I have to say only 28 cases in TV makes this a great percentage of the odds.

Hoping people feel safer with the number that are being posted. Sadly those who are bringing grands in from high infection rate areas, could change those numbers, if not following the guidelines for sheltering in place for 14 days.
Do not worry about things you can not change

I really appreciate the wide ranging information that is posted on this forum - even about Prince Phillip. I hope that all public figures everywhere take precautions. I think they should self isolate and communicate via electronic media. They should be the first to model social distancing.

I believe TV will come out well at the end of the day. Many Villagers took this virus seriously right from its start.
