As the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak continues to evolve, the City of Tampa is working closely with local, state, and federal agencies to prevent the spread of respiratory disease throughout the community.

Today, the City of Tampa launched a revamped web platform to communicate important public health information related to COVID-19.

This resource can be accessed at and contains information related to general risk updates, coronavirus symptoms and risk factors, travel information, FAQs, local, state, and federal resources, and more.

As more information becomes available regarding the impact of coronavirus in Tampa, the City will update this site to keep residents informed.

“The safety of our residents is our number one priority,” says Mayor Jane Castor. “We want to make it as easy as possible for our residents to find the information that they need to stay safe and stay informed. Tampa is currently at a low-risk level for coronavirus, but this outbreak is still evolving every day and we can’t be complacent. We all have to do our part to prevent the spread of germs and protect ourselves, so that we can protect the most vulnerable members of our community.”

In addition to visiting this online resource, the city also encourages residents to text TAMPAREADY or TAMPALISTA to 888-777 to receive real-time text alerts related to COVID-19 and other emergencies.
