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 curent standing as a community.

We’re in this Race to Safe together – the St. Pete Way.
