A Message from the Municipality of Eindhoven

15-04-2020

Dear Eindhovener,

 

In just a few weeks, the coronavirus has drastically changed all our lives, here in our otherwise lively city of Eindhoven too. The streets are empty, we're staying at home. We are incredibly proud of you all for complying with the measures we are forced to take to combat the virus. Together, we can do this!

 

Our sympathy goes out to those who have been affected by this terrible virus. We hope you will get well soon! Our thoughts are also with the family and loved ones of the people who have died. We wish you every strength at this difficult time.

Meanwhile, many people are making exceptional efforts, such as those working in our hospitals and care homes. We are very grateful to you for the work you continue to do for us. We are also grateful to our residents who work in essential professions, who make sure that much of everyday life can carry on. Thanks to you, we can comply with the measures here in Eindhoven and in doing so, combat the spread of the virus.

 

The measures taken significantly affect a number of groups in Eindhoven's community. These are lonely and anxious times for our senior citizens, for people working from home and young people receiving schooling at home. Everyone is experiencing great uncertainty. For that reason, we are offering assistance to, for example, entrepreneurs, associations, institutions and care providers. Read more about this on our website at www.eindhoven.nl.

 

Despite this situation, it is heartening to see that the creativity and solidarity of Eindhoveners is strong. Wonderful initiatives aimed at helping each other are being set up. This makes us confident that we will get through this together and that the Eindhoven 'vibe' will only become stronger!

The Mayor and the Executive of the Municipal Council
