St. Pete Chamber presents Caronavirus Insights: Jane Buckman

May 29, 2020, 08:39 PM

On this episode, Jane Buckman, executive director of Imagine Museum joins Chris Steinocher, CEO of the St. Petersburg Chamber of Commerce and Joe Hamilton, publisher of the St. Pete Catalyst.

But first, as usual, Steinocher takes listeners through the Florida Chamber Scorecard for Pinellas County. He says the outlook is optimistic, as the percent of positive tests cases sits at 1.26 percent. The 14-day average of positive cases is down to 20, following a weekend high of 22.4.

Buckman shares how the Imagine Museum has grappled with COVID-19 and the decision to reopen the Museum over Mother’s Day weekend. She explains that the museum’s mission is to inspire, uplift and educate, and the best way to do that is to provide a physical place where people can go to be immersed in art, something Buckman says has benefitted her during the pandemic. #stpetechamber #stpetecatalyst #stpetefl #sunshineshere #TampaBay #Radio
