Meritus Office Update
Due to the impact of the coronavirus, Hillsborough and Pinellas Counties have issued a stay at home order. This means that our offices will be closed to the public during this period. We will still be providing services remotely so you can still reach us by phone or email, and we will get back to you as soon as we can. Please understand that this order will affect vendors and suppliers as well and certain services may either be delayed or unavailable. Meritus will do everything in our power to keep providing services to your community and we are here with you during this difficult time. We look forward to getting through this safe and healthy and wish you and your loved ones the best.
