Florida emergency operations center hit with COVID-19

Florida

TALLAHASSEE, Fla (AP) — Part of the Florida Division of Emergency Management is closed after 12 employees tested positive for coronavirus.

Agency spokesman Jason Mahon said Saturday that the main facility was going through a deep clean over the weekend and would reopen Monday.

A latest round of tests Thursday found four positive employees, prompting the shutdown.

Non-positive workers were either moved to other areas of the facility, or told to work from home.
