TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — With the economic uncertainties from the coronavirus, we here at ABC 27 are shining a light on businesses that are doing their part to help out the community while keeping their business open.

People in Tallahassee are conquering a new challenge while safely venturing out.

"I came here to let off some steam," said Viveca Redmond, a local entrepreneur. "It's been a busy week."

Tomahawks 51 Axe Throwing is offering a safe way for people to have fun and let off some steam during these difficult times.

"I never done this and I had to relieve some stress, as you can see," said Vonsheryl Jackson, a phlebotomist. "Look at the board!"

The nearly 1-year-old business closed for 10 weeks during the coronavirus pandemic and re-opened at the end of May.

Owners Will and Erika Tetsworth say business now is only at about 25 percent of what it was before the pandemic, but it's slowly growing.

Employees are wearing masks, taking temperatures at the door, and continuously wiping down tables, axes and high-touched items, with disinfectant.

"And then, in general our capacities had to be changed a little bit," said Will Tetsworth. "So we have six ranges, which equates to 12 targets. We've basically cut that in half, where we put groups every other range so it creates a 10-foot gap between another group that's going to be in there."

They are participating in the Infinity Con's "Remote Con" at the end of the month.
