TALLAHASSEE, Fla.(WTXL) — In observance of Mother’s Day weekend, the Florida A&M University-Bond Community Health Center COVID-19 testing site is reducing its hours.

Organizers say on Sunday May 10, the time-frame for testing will be shortened from 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.

The site at Bragg Memorial Stadium will resume all regular operating guidelines the following Monday.

It's scheduled to continue in operation until at least through May 14 and may be extended longer on a weekly basis depending on the traffic.

Since the site opened on April 25, more than 2,500 tests have been completed.

The walk-up site increased daily capacity to 300 tests per day after initially starting with a 200 daily testing maximum.
