On Wednesday, Florida added 9,994 coronavirus cases and 96 deaths—including 1,579 coronavirus cases and 22 deaths in Tampa Bay.

State data says that this week, Florida has recorded about 8,069 cases per day on average. As of Monday, about one in every 21 Florida residents has now tested positive for COVID-19.

Still, live music is trying to find a way to stay on its feet. We’ve marked the gigs at venues that have joined a local “Safe & Sound” initiative that pledges to strictly enforce limited capacity, mask wearing and social distancing (they're marked with a * below).
