I think I'd remove the plants now. Even if they flowered and began developing fruits later in the summer, the fruits probably won't have time to ripen. Removing the plants now will give you an opportunity to prepare the soil for your fall crops. And, you'll avoid having your stressed tomato plants develop diseases or attract destructive insects which can harm your garden later in the year.
