On Monday, Florida added 8,720 coronavirus cases and 156 deaths; locally, Tampa Bay added 1,345 coronavirus cases and 43 deaths. About 20%of hospital beds and 18% of ICU beds were open, according to the Tampa Bay Times, and while 1,407,411 people in Florida have been vaccinated as of Monday, the numbers still give us thousands of reasons to stay safe at home.
Still, the local music scene is still trying to figure out how to get back on its feet. We’ve marked the gigs at venues that have joined a Tampa-based and city-recognized “Safe & Sound” initiative that pledges to strictly enforce limited capacity, mask wearing and social distancing—and tried our best to explain COVID-19 protocols at venues that not able to join Tampa’s “Safe & Sound” program.
