Coronavirus: information for councils

Useful information for councils on novel coronavirus (COVID-19).


The LGA is liaising with Public Health England (PHE), the Department for Health and Social Care (DHSC) and the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) regarding the evolving situation with the outbreak of the coronavirus.  

On these pages, you will be able to find the latest official information, as well as guidance and resources from the LGA and our key partners.

COVID-19 cases data from LG Inform

The LGA has created two LG Inform COVID-19 reports showing cases data over time, the rate per 100,000 people, and the top ten councils for cases (by total number, as a rate, and by the biggest number on a single day) on a daily basis. 


We are working as fast as we can to update this section with useful information for you. Please keep checking back and follow us on Twitter @LGAcomms and @LGAnews for the latest updates.
