Due to the potential for severe weather associated with Tropical Storm Idalia, all clinics and offices of the Coastal Health District will close at 3 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 29 and remain closed until 10 a.m. on Thursday, Aug. 31. This includes the health departments in Bryan, Camden, Chatham, Effingham, Glynn, Liberty, Long, and McIntosh Counties. The district’s two drive-through COVID testing sites in Savannah and Hinesville will be closed Wednesday.

  • Have a three-day supply of prescription medications. 
  • Turn the refrigerator to the coldest setting. 
  • Secure homes by covering doors and windows.
