Florida: Tropical Storm Eta Causes Major Damage to Major COVID-19 Testing Site

November 10, 2020

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. — Florida officials say one of the major COVID-19 testing sites in the state suffered major damage due to the extensive rain dumped by Tropical Storm Eta in South Florida.

Samantha Bequer, spokeswoman for the Florida Division of Emergency Management, said parts of the Hard Rock Stadium’s site were trapped beneath 16 inches of rain. Throughout the pandemic, it has been one of the state’s busiest places for people to get a coronavirus diagnosis.

All of the testing sites in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties managed by the state government closed on Sunday and Monday due to the tropical storm. State officials said testing sites in Lee County also were forced to close due to the storm’s impact. The state has not officially said when it would reopen any of them.
