COVID-19 UPDATES

 

HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY BACK TO BUSINESS TOOLKIT

This toolkit was created to provide you with the resources you need to resume safe operation and put the current health and safety guidelines provided by federal, state and local government agencies at your fingertips.

 

Update: Effective Monday, May 18, 2020, the state of Florida will move into a full Phase 1. Gov. Ron DeSantis announced the reopening of museums, libraries, retail, and restaurants at 50% capacity. Hillsborough County State Parks will also reopen. Bars, nightclubs, and theaters will remain closed until further notice. 

 

Get Tested

Hillsborough County significantly expanded its point-in-time testing for COVID-19 coronavirus. This means that anyone who wants to be tested can pre-register to get tested for free at community sites. Here are answers to basic questions about community testing. 

 

 

Mask Recommendation

Hillsborough County leaders are recommending everyone follow the most recent CDC advisory urging people to wear masks when visiting the grocery store, take-out restaurants or other essential businesses to reduce the potential for the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
