Sheffield City Council has published key public safety information in various languages including Arabic, Urdu, Punjabi, Polish, Somali, Chinese and English.

The digital posters, postcards and social media graphics are aimed at ensuring key public health information reaches as much of the city's population as possible, including details about the Council's community helpline and how people in Sheffield can get a coronavirus test.

The site also includes important messaging around handwashing, social distancing and limiting contact, self-isolating and shopping.

Local people are encouraged to pass the information on, print and display it and share it online, with higher quality versions available from the Council on request.

The Council recently opened the first of three Local Testing Sites in Alderson Road Car Park in Sharrow, in collaboration with public health and community partners, with plans for two further sites in Darnall and Burngreave.
