Practical Actions in Cities to Strengthen Preparedness for the COVID-19 Pandemic and Beyond: An Interim Checklist for Local Authorities   [open pdf - 780KB]

From the Purpose, Target Audience and Scope: "This document accompanies the interim guidance 'Strengthening preparedness for COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 2019] in cities and urban settings', which is to complement the COVID-19 strategic preparedness and response plan (SPRP) and strategy update. It elaborates and expands on recommended actions as listed in the interim guidance and provides local authorities, leaders and policy-makers in cities with a checklist tool to enhance preparedness for the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. It is neither prescriptive nor exhaustive and should be adapted to national regulatory frameworks, the competences of subnational actors, and local social, cultural and economic contexts. The checklist is not intended to replace other guidance and plans but to complement them by helping local authorities ensure that key areas have been covered."
