The Orange County Convention Center testing site along with other state-run sites are closing today through Tuesday ahead of Tropical Storm Isaias.
Spokesperson Mike Jachles says residents should contact their county health department for alternate testing sites that might be open through the weekend.
“There are also a number of health and hospital systems and pharmacies and urgent care centers as well that have testing available. So, since they’re all indoors, you may want to explore that as an option.”
Jachles says these closures won’t affect how and when individuals and families receive test results.
“The labs that we’re using from the Orange County Convention Center site are actually out-of-state and at the end of the day Thursday all of the samples that were collected will be sent to that lab so they will be in their possession.”
Orange County will be closing its testing site at Econ Soccer Complex on Friday through the middle of next week in preparation for the storm.
The Mexican Consulate in Orlando will open a testing site on Saturday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. No appointments are necessary.
