But there are still reasons why Floridians and beachgoers to the state should be cautious.
The virus is still spreading rampantly
That increase came as most of Florida entered a second stage of reopening on Friday.
An R value under 1 means fewer and fewer people will get infected, and the virus starts to fade away. But an R value of more than 1 means the epidemic will get worse.
More than 63,000 people in Florida have been infected with the coronavirus, and more than 2,700 have died from the virus in the state, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.
Several states are outpacing New York
California, Texas, Florida and Illinois have all had higher average numbers of daily new cases, according to a CNN analysis.
California, on average, saw the most new cases per day during the week ending Sunday, averaging about 2,666 daily new cases, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.
Texas averaged about 1,537 daily new cases, followed by Florida with about 1,111 daily new cases and Illinois with about 1,071 daily new cases.
New York is No. 5, with an average of about 1,047 new cases per day.
And while the number of new cases in California, Texas and Florida has generally been increasing, both Illinois and New York have seen a decrease in new cases reported.
