Hillsborough County announced it is closing its last COVID-19 testing and vaccination site effective March 17.

And due to the low COVID-19 positivity rate in Hillsborough County, officials will allow the state of local emergency to expire. As of last week, the positivity rate was 2.9%.

Hillsborough officials say they will continue to monitor COVID-19 data to determine if there is a need to open a testing or vaccination site in the future.
