Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19): County Response Efforts & Priorities

Tags: Health

Help NACo estimate the cumulative impact of COVID-19 on county workforces (especially regarding furloughs and layoffs), as well as county finances and budgets, by taking a quick, five minute survey. The results will help us ensure the needs of county leaders are accurately understood and adequately met in upcoming federal legislation responding to COVID-19.

Take the Survey

Counties are on the front lines protecting our communities from the coronavirus and other illnesses that have the potential to become a pandemic. Counties support over 900 hospitals and operate over 1,900 public health departments, which are the ground troops in the fight against the coronavirus outbreak.

During this crisis, NACo is focused on disseminating useful information to our members, and facilitating the exchange of effective strategies and approaches.
