Coronavirus (COVID-19) Impact On The Tampa Bay Area

Local businesses that have not been deemed essential have been forced to close their doors while many area residents are under a safer-at-home order and may either be out of work or working from home. Both this pandemic and the actions taken to prevent the spread of it have changed the way we all go about our daily lives, at least for the time being.
