Default Bacterial something, should I pull plant?

We've had the second wettest spring on record here, and one of my tomato plants is showing signs of what I think may be a bacterial issue. I'm seeing a lot of conflicting advice online. Should I pull the plant? And is there anything I should do preventatively on my other plants? Thank you.

I had it a couple years ago for the first time. Had I been more knowledgeable about speck I would have pulled the whole patch and started over. IF you can get new plants start over is my opinion. otherwise all your fruit will have specks on it. I suppose you can use it but I could not sell it for someone else to use. I threw away a lot of fruit.

Thanks. I pulled the plant yesterday. The other plants seem unaffected so far, going to go buy copper spray today to help keep them that way.

good idea. I sincerely hope you don't have it on any other plants. My whole tomato patch had it. hundreds of tomatoes. high tunnel and garden. do disappointing. It had to have blown in on a storm as the entire NE part of OH was battling it.
