City governments are on the front line of the response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The threat of widespread illness impacts how city governments deliver services to the public, how cities interact with state and federal agencies for assistance and how cities solicit the cooperation of the public in the protection of public health. The University of Georgia and GMA conducted a survey of city governments in the state between April 8 and 22 to learn more about how municipalities are responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. This four-part series of essays by Dr. Eric Zeemering summarizes the survey results, explains how city governments remained open and engaged, outlines city-level perspectives on the intergovernmental response to the pandemic and illustrates the networks that have formed to respond to health and economic aspects of the pandemic at the local level.
