All our news, blogs, press releases and resources relating to coronavirus (COVID-19).

Environmental Health Practitioners (EHPs) are uniquely placed to help deal with the crisis caused by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. To support them and the wider environmental health profession during this challenging period, this section compiles all of our news, blogs and guidance on the subject.

Environmental Health Together register

In response to the shortage of EHPs available to help local authorities (LAs) in England deal with the impact of the pandemic, the Environmental Health Together register was created to help them access the skills they desperately need. It's hosted by the Local Government Association (LGA), professionally quality-assured by CIEH, and backed by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) and NHS Test and Trace.

The Environmental Health Together programme will close on 29 October as the government funding for this campaign has come to an end.
