The City of Tampa is lighting up red, white, and blue as a beacon of hope and unity for our city, state, and nation in the face of COVID-19. Old City Hall and downtown Tampa bridges and fountains will be changing to red, white, and blue, starting tonight in solidarity with our country during this difficult time, and to inspire a sense of national and local pride.

“We are one city, one state, and one nation, united together in our fight against COVID-19” says Mayor Jane Castor. “The American people and the people of Tampa are incredibly resilient, and we will get through this difficult time together. While we may have to be apart for a little while, we are still united in spirit and our community is stronger than ever.” 

The City of Tampa would like to remind residents to stay at home as much as they can to protect themselves and others from the spread of COVID-19.
