COVID testing sites reopening Monday, local events cancelled

Sunday's winter weather is forcing events, businesses and COVID-19 testing centers to alter their Monday plans.

This weather event was primarily confined to Sunday, although some lingering frozen conditions could stick around into Monday morning.

COVID-19 testing sites will be reopening at 11 a.m. Monday morning because of lingering weather concerns.

Monday is Martin Luther King Jr. Day, and many schools and businesses are already closed. However, some events have been postponed or canceled.

Raleigh's annual MLK memorial march scheduled for Monday, January 17 in Downtown Raleigh has been cancelled. Organizers announced on Facebook Sunday that "they made the decision to cancel the event due to potential hazardous effects of current inclement weather."

Wake and Durham public school and athletic event shave been cancelled for Monday due to the weather.

Also, the annual Martin Luther King Day Brunch hosted by the Cumberland County Ministerial Council has been postponed, a tentative date for the event is now set for February 21, 2022.
