As a council we have been preparing for the last couple of months for the challenges of coronavirus, and the weeks and months ahead. Read our message from the Lord Mayor and the Leader of the Council
We have worked closely with the NHS, universities, schools and businesses across Coventry to prepare for significant changes ahead, especially working on how we can protect and maintain critical services to protect and support citizens.
The Council is working hard to minimise disruption to our services as a result of COVID-19 and we are working hard to keep services running but will focus our efforts on the most critical elements. In doing so disruption to many services is likely. This may be caused by staff absence or official advice from the government or the chief medical officer.
We have initiated our Pandemic Flu Emergency Plan to monitor the situation and coordinate the response across the Council and we are working closely with our NHS partners and Public Health England.

Supplies are needed urgently to support frontline staff – we are in need of surgical fluid repellent masks (type IIR or equivalent), FFP 2 or FFP3 masks, goggles and visors, nitrile and latex gloves, aprons and hand sanitiser liquid/gel (minimum 60% alcohol – any size).
Any volume will help at this stage – they do not need to be large quantities. Find out how you can offer support.
