Orlando International Airport will not be operating, starting 2 a.m. Tuesday morning, despite earlier announcements that it would open again.

But a post from the Orange County Sheriff's Office makes it clear that no one has business at MCO starting "tonight (Sep 2)," citing the post from the airport.
