Suffolk, Nassau close several COVID-19 mobile testing sites due to storm forecast

The high wind forecast has closed four COVID-19 mobile testing sites in Nassau and Suffolk counties for the day.
The public testing sites have been screening thousands of people daily for COVID-19.
Officials in both counties decided that due to the severe weather, and wind gusts expected to be up to 70 mph, they will temporarily close locations, including the one at Stony Brook University and Jones Beach.
The testing is done outdoors like a drive-thru and health care professionals work out of tents to get the job done.
Other locations in Riverhead, Huntington Station and Brentwood, all hotspots for the virus, are closed too. Officials were seen taking down tents on Sunday as a precaution.
As long as there is no significant damage, officials expect for operations to return to normal on Tuesday.
All public testing sites still require appointments. Appointments for today will be rescheduled.
Meanwhile, PSEG said they are expecting abnormal weather conditions that could cause downed power lines. They say they are prepared, but ask for your patience as their employees work with new procedures to keep everyone safe.
PSEG says everyone should charge electronics ahead of time and assume all downed wires are live.
