Pinellas County extends State of Local Emergency through Nov. 20

PINELLAS COUNTY, Fla. – Pinellas County on Tuesday extended its State of Local Emergency for COVID-19 through Nov. 20. The extension was issued by County Administrator Barry A. Burton by delegated authority from the Board of County Commissioners.

The extension keeps in effect a County ordinance requiring face coverings within public places and restaurants and bars to serve only patrons who are seated. Public health officials continue to closely monitor the 7-day rolling averages for new COVID-19 cases, percentage of positive tests, hospitalizations and hospital bed capacity.

Any action the Board takes pertaining to Tropical Storm Eta would be separate from this declaration, according to the County.
