Is this bacterial speck?

Hi everybody,

I am new to gardening and New England and the forums. I planted tomatoes into containers (with a commercial potting mix) the week before Memorial Day. Everything was going well until the past week of 50 degree days and nonstop rain showers-I was horrified to see my plants' leaves covered in tiny black spots yesterday. I've purchased one of the copper-containing fungicides to apply today, but I was wondering if these plants are goners? I hate to lose them, especially since the seedlings survived a 12 hour drive.

Hopefully this photo shows up-any thoughts are appreciated!

It doesn't look like speck or spot to me. You could try Maneb/Manecosib or similar.

Now there are leaves curling on the smallest plants too. So sad. :-(
