The news of the storm’s approach and threat of turning into a hurricane led Flordida to close state-supported COVID-19 testing sites on Thursday at 5pm local time ‘to keep indiviudals operating and attending the sites safe.’

The testing sites will remain closed until it is safe to reopen though officials anticipate all sites to be back open and running by August 5 at 8am at the latest.

Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez said to CNN Thursday he’s concerned about evacuating locals which could further spread the virus.

“Look, if we have a major hurricane here, then we’re going to have to evacuate a number of people and then we’re going to have to … try to keep them separated as much as possible. That’s a concern,” he said.
