Mavi Travel agency in Orlando is closing its doors this year.
Afrique Travel Agency in Miami is closing in 2017.
The companies’ parent company, Avid, announced the closings in a statement.
“Avid is committed to providing a high quality travel experience to its customers and partners,” the company said.
“As a result of these developments, Avids customers will no longer be able to book through Mavi, and Avids employees will no more be able book through Afrique.
We are deeply saddened and regret this decision.”
This comes as Florida is struggling with record high temperatures, severe drought, and an increase in mosquito activity.
On Sunday, the Florida Department of Health announced that it would issue the state a cease-and-desist order for Avid and Afrique after they began distributing mosquito repellent to residents in the state.
Mavi and Afridi said that they will continue to work with the state and local health departments to protect the state from mosquito-borne disease outbreaks.
The two companies will remain operational in the Florida Keys.
“We appreciate the efforts of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, which has been working to ensure the safety and well-being of our customers and employees,” Avid CEO Scott Schulte said in a company statement.
He added that the company has implemented a number of safety measures.
Mavis and Afidi are the only companies listed in the official Florida Department on its website.
