Race to Safe

We’re all working hard to Restart St. Pete and adapt to a new normal.

But, in light of the continued community health risks, we’re shifting our focus to reducing Pinellas County’s COVID-19 positivity rate and being Florida’s most COVID-safe community.

Our daily lives and important moments like holidays, weddings and graduations have looked a lot different, but we must continue doing everything we can to keep our community safe. Below, you'll find resources to navigate the pandemic and help prevent the spread as well as metrics with our current standing as a community.

We’re in this Race to Safe together – the St. Pete Way. You can help affect these numbers. Our standing as a community will not improve without a commitment from all of us. Remember to wear your mask, practice social distancing and wash your hands. Review St. Pete's Race to Safe Toolkit to learn how you can help eliminate the pandemic.
