Coronavirus Resources

The Florida League of Cities is working in conjunction with the state’s 412 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.

Florida Major Disaster Declaration
On March 25, President Trump declared that a major disaster exists in the State of Florida and ordered Federal assistance to supplement State, tribal, and local recovery efforts in the areas affected by the Coronavirus. Federal funding is also available to State, tribal, and eligible local governments and certain private nonprofit organizations for emergency protective measures, including direct Federal assistance, for all areas in the State of Florida impacted by COVID-19.

Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act 
On March 25, just before midnight, the U.S. Senate passed the CARES Act (H.R. 748) the third stimulus bill. House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer announced the House will vote on the bill Friday. The House will not try to pass it by unanimous consent. Instead, it will pass it by a voice vote. The Coronavirus Relief Fund established under the CARES Act will primarily help states, and the potential impact on local budgets is largely unknown at this point because Governors will have maximum flexibility to allocate resources from the fund as they see fit.
