Covid memorial: Gathering ‘Stories from the Pandemic’

Sheffield is creating unique, long-lasting, and creative memorials as a tribute to those who have died from Covid, those who have lost loved ones and those who have been affected by the pandemic. Our city, like those around the world, has been deeply affected by the impact of Covid-19, and in Sheffield we want to pay a meaningful tribute to those who have lost their lives, those who have worked above and beyond to keep people as safe as possible and those who have been affected by Covid.

Video: Voluntary Community Sector Covid Recovery Fund making a difference

Sheffield City Council has recently awarded £1.35 million of grants through its Voluntary Community Sector Covid Recovery Fund. The fund used central government Covid funding to support voluntary sector organisations who had either reduced income or increased costs relating to Covid. The pandemic has once again demonstrated the critical role the sector plays in supporting people throughout the city and the funding will support organisations ongoing work amongst Sheffield’s communities.

Our statement on the news coverage raising concerns about Sheffield Covid test results

We are aware of the news coverage raising concerns about Sheffield Covid test results which were handled by the Immensa lab in Wolverhampton and has since been linked to a considerable number of inaccurate test results in the South of England. Dr Eleanor Rutter, Consultant in Public Health for Sheffield City Council has said: “This is a national issue that has been well publicised but has only affected a very small proportion of Sheffield’s tests. “The number of people identified as potentially having been given a false negative result in Sheffield is incredibly small. There is nothing to suggest this has had a significant impact on infection rates in the city. “Tests from the city are sent to many different labs across the country, and this particular lab only received a small percentage of them.”

Final step out of lockdown delayed

The Government’s final stage of the roadmap out of lockdown planned for 21 June has been delayed until 19 July. All legal limits on social contact were due to be lifted in a week’s time, but Prime Minister Boris Johnson has warned that with the number of cases growing by 64 per cent per week and in some areas it is doubling, it’s better to be cautious and not move out of Step 4 until more people have had the Covid vaccine. He also talked about how the average number of people being admitted to hospital has increased by 50% per week on week and by 61 per cent in the North West with his main concern being that it’s possible that ‘the virus will outrun the vaccines and that thousands more deaths would ensue that could otherwise have been avoided.'

Another step out of lockdown on Monday 17th May

Success for Sheffield's local 'track and trace'

Contact tracing is a fundamental part of controlling the Covid-19 pandemic and in Sheffield we are one of the first councils in the UK to bring all Covid-19 contact tracing of positive cases in-house. We have recruited a team of tracers who work with residents who may have been exposed to the virus and we’ve seen a rapid rise in our track and trace success rate which now stands at 95% of all positive cases contact traced. The results of those who receive a positive diagnosis come straight to the council and we attempt to contact as many as possible of them within 7 hours.
