Over the past month, the COVID-19 pandemic has drastically changed our way of life. All sports and cultural events have been cancelled, going out is limited to strictly necessary activities, remote working has become the norm, and schoolwork is being done at home instead of in the classroom. Such measures are necessary to support our healthcare workers so that we can slow down the spread of the virus.
Here at the municipal administration, we have a duty to ensure waste collection services, provide high-quality running water, keep our administrative departments open, and much more. The City’s departments have adapted to this crisis, or even rein vented themselves so that everyday services can continue to be provided under the best possible conditions.
One of our priorities is caring for our elderly and vulnerable residents. With this in mind, the Service Intervention sociale (Social Intervention Department) and the Service Seniors (Department of Senior Services) have set up a helpline that they can call to ask questions and get help with their shopping and other necessary errands.
What’s more, our cultural institutions have made a range of activities and content available to keep us occupied during the lockdown. For example, you can take a 3D tour of the Ons Schueberfouer exhibition at the Lëtzebuerg City Museum, or watch previous shows performed at the Grand Théâtre from the comfort of your own home.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank our employees who are working tirelessly for the city and its residents. Please rest assured that we are here for you during this difficult time.
*We are there for you.
