Alachua County Health Department Administrator Paul Myers tells TV20 that cases are not increasing at an exponential rate.

He also says the percentage of positive cases is going down which is a good sign.

He credits those improvements with successful social distancing by Alachua County residents.

"If you go out on the streets if you go out on the stores and you're practicing social distancing - And our streets are typically busy during this time of the year. There is very little traffic out there. Not a lot of people out and about, and so really at the end end of the day it's up to each and every one of us to do what's right during this really unprecedented time," Myers said.

If you have questions on transmission or treatment of COVID-19, the Alachua County Health Department has an information line you can call at (352) 225-4181.
