“Congratulations to all of my many friends at The Villages in Florida on having done so well, and with such great spirit, during these rather unusual times,” Trump tweeted, in part. “So proud of everyone!”
Located about an hour north of Orlando, The Villages has about 60,000 households and 128,000 residents, The Journal reported.
Thus far, The Journal reported, at least 71 residents have tested positive for COVID-19, though the number could be higher.
“There is clearly an opportunity for it to take off and cause problems,” Glenn Morris, director of the University of Florida Emerging Pathogens Institute told The Journal. “At least right at the moment, things appear stable.”
Here’s what else you need to know about The Villages.
Some of those amenities -- within the 32-square-mile property of the community -- include 12 Championship golf courses and 35 executive courses as well as three local libraries, three movie theaters and three “uniquely themed town squares” -- much like a downtown, according to the FAQ page.
The Villages also has its own hospital and a public safety department with an EMT and fire department.
Those living costs cover the average payments for water, sewer, gas and electric, trash collection, basic cable, insurance and average taxes, as well as a community amenity fee and Development District Assessment.
However, monthly costs vary based on the size of a home, the community website said. The Villages offers a variety of homes and villas.
The median household income in The Villages from 2014 to 2018 was $61,533, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
