Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings said the county is getting closer to a positivity rate below 5% – which the World Health Organization considers controlling the spread of the virus.
So far, the mayor said about 74-percent of people over 12 in Orange County have at least one shot of the vaccine.
While the numbers are getting better, Demings says now is not the time to drop your guard.
