Tartu city government launched a survey on Monday into the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the activities and future plans of the city's culture, sports and youth work organizations.

In addition to mapping out the impact of the pandemic and the current situation, the survey also seeks feedback on the activities of the city's department of culture during the crisis and aims to collect information on future support needs, BNS reports.

Marleen Viidul, head of the Tartu city government's department of culture, said it had already been decided in spring that the survey of the effects of the coronavirus pandemic would be conducted at the end of summer after the state's crisis support measures have been paid out. 

Viidul added: "That way, we'll get an up-to-date overview of the current situation and areas that have suffered the most extensive negative effects due to the pandemic, and we'll be able to plan our further activities accordingly."

The survey is geared at identifying the proportion of loss in revenue as well as the extent to which national support measures were used. Organizations are also requested to assess their coping with the restrictions imposed during the emergency situation and the effects thereof.

The survey of the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic can be taken by the relevant organizations until August 15.
