(WSVN) - The Cuban government will suspend all flights to and from the island, the U.S. Embassy in Cuba announced.

According to a tweet posted just before 7:45 a.m., the suspension will go into effect at midnight Wednesday.

“U.S. citizens in Cuba who normally live in the United States should arrange for immediate return with American Airlines today or be prepared to remain abroad for an indefinite period,” the embassy said.

The last flight departing the island is an American Airlines plane that leaves at 12:55 p.m. and is scheduled to arrive at Miami International Airport.

There are currently 186 COVID-19 cases in Cuba.
