The Confederation of Cooperatives of Catalonia in Spain has implemented a series of measures for cooperatives, including free legal and economic advice, a solidarity contingency fund that offers immediate liquidity and opening of a line of guarantees to access higher funding, and online training sessions. Courier cooperatives distributed health care material to the community, agricultural cooperatives collaborated with local governments to disinfect installations and streets in cities. Bookstores have enabled online sales distribution and healthcare centres have implemented an online service to provide psychological care, support for families, care for children and the elderly living alone. School cooperatives have operationalized their work through the use of ICT.
