9. In an effort to limit the spread of the virus, residents of the states of Florida are given priority to TCF enrollments (candidates are asked for a proof of residence).  The Alliance Française Miami Metro reserves the right to cancel registrations of candidates residing in other states.  Candidates from other states are requested to present one of the followings: a COVID-19 negative result completed in Miami 72 hours before the test or the proof of a 14-day self-quarantine in Miami.
