My contract states if I pass the CPA in 18 months I get a $5k bonus. Do you think because of the pandemic there won't be a bonus once I am done ?

It will still be bonus paid out. If you think that company would violate a contract for something that small.. company has way bigger issues.

Given the stories posted here about Siegfried Group this might be the one firm that actually would try to stiff OP out of $5k

I don't think this will affect the timing of your bonus. I think you will still get it, as long as you pass the CPA exams in 18 months. Also, whether or not you get a bonus, you should try to get your CPA done as soon as you can. As you move up in Public Accounting (and in life in general lol) the CPA exams become harder to balance.
