TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — The Bond Community Health Center has announced it will be closing its main site at 1720 South Gadsden Street, after a staff member tested positive for COVID-19.

According to the release sent Wednesday, the staff member has not been on-site this week and both staff and patients are currently undergoing testing.

Officials say the health center, including dentistry and pharmacy, will undergo a full cleaning and disinfecting throughout the weekend and will reopen on Monday, June 29.

“Here at Bond, the safety of our patients and staff is our highest priority,” said CEO Dr. Temple Robinson. “Out of an abundance of caution, we are temporarily closing to ensure that the proper testing, cleaning, and precautions are being followed in order to prevent spread.
