Orange and Seminole County to join state coronavirus test sites and close ahead of Isaias

Thursday will be the last day for testing until next week

All state-run coronavirus test sites in Florida, including the Orange County Convention Center test site, will be closed beginning at 5 p.m. Thursday through at least Tuesday because of Tropical Storm Isaias.

We checked and both Orange and Seminole counties will close their test sites on Friday as well.

Some county health departments will remain open for testing, but anyone wishing to be tested must call in advance.

The Florida Department of Emergency Management (FDEM) said in a statement that most state-run test sites will remain closed until they are safe to reopen, with all sites anticipated to be reopened at the latest by 8 a.m., Wednesday.

Testing site re-openings will be posted on FDEM’s social media.
