- “A normal day during this COVID pandemic is about $6,500 a day, which is actually lower than a normal day, because of the lack of tourism,” says Robbie Wroblewski, Seed & Smith’s director of community outreach. “But since the checks started dropping we have seen a huge jump, and it is all coming from the local community as opposed to tourists.”
