Orange County scales back COVID-19 vaccination sites as positive cases continue decline

ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — Health officials in Orlando shut down a COVID-19 vaccination site Friday at Camping World Stadium and moved operations across town.

The Orange County operations are now back at Barnett Park, near the Central Florida Fairgrounds.

Officials said the fight against COVID-19 is moving in the right direction, as Orange County has managed to keep its rolling positivity rate below 10%.

Although there’s still work to do to continue that trend, sites have been scaled back.

A COVID-19 site at Clarcona Elementary school will also close on Sunday.

The Barnett Park site remains a place to get tested for COVID-19 as well.
