As cases of the virus continue to grow across the United States, including Florida, it is important for all of us as resilience program managers to be armed with as much information as possible.  As with all Emergency Management Departments across the US, TBEC is monitoring the situation and will use this page to post the most relevant information for our members.

Please return to this page often as we will add pertinent information as we find it.
