COVID-19

Cities, towns and villages are on the front lines of responding to the outbreak of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in their community. Local elected leaders have the primary responsibility for ensuring the health and safety of their residents. Local governments have longstanding emergency protocols for public health emergencies and community members rely on them to provide them with timely, accurate information about their local preparedness and response.

NLC is committed to providing our members the necessary tools and resources to ensure local leaders are well equipped to navigate the current outbreak of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in their community.
