WE'RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak is a rapidly changing situation with information changing on a daily basis. On this page you'll find helpful links to the most up to date information from the UK Government and key partners.

It doesn’t feel right to be promoting tourism or investment opportunities at the moment, so we're taking a break from doing so across all of our channels. Instead, we'll be championing our partners and sharing key information where we can. Over on our VisitLiverpool social media channels, we'll be sharing our favourite photos of Liverpool City Region - we encourage you to share yours with us too. We hope this provides somewhat of a distraction during these troubling times. Like everyone, our priority has to be health – of visitors, locals, our partners and the many people who have made this such an amazing place.

The UK is currently on lockdown for all but essential travel and business. As such, our team are all working from home, but we're still here to support you in any way we can. Please continue to get in touch via email, social media or telephone - we'd love to hear from you.

Liverpool is renowned for standing together through good times and bad, and we need that spirit more than ever right now - we're all in this together. Please stay safe wherever you are.

We're all in this togehter.

Love,
Marketing Liverpool
