Coronavirus Resources

The Florida League of Cities is working in conjunction with the state’s 411 cities, towns and villages to help share vital information and updates regarding the coronavirus and its impact on the Sunshine State. 


As Florida continues to monitor the coronavirus (COVID-19) within our state, it is important to remain calm, vigilant and informed about the virus. This site is to help our local government partners share information and resources and learn the latest state and federal announcements to help keep your communities safe. We will continue to update this page as new information develops, so please check back daily.


As the impact of the coronavirus evolves, the Florida League of Cities will work closely with state officials, municipal leaders and strategic partners to share the latest information. We encourage everyone to continue practicing good health habits.

The League has created a special COVID-19 publication to keep you informed of resources and ideas from cities of every size across the state. Click the image to the right to read the publication online. Download Printable PDF
