Public Q & A session on Coronavirus

Coronavirus (Covid-19)

Sheffield’s Covid-19 Prevention and Management Board held its first public briefing and Q&A session on Friday 28 August 2020.

What is the board?

This is a cross-party Board chaired by the Leader of the Council, and alongside the Director of Public Health membership includes a range of community voices providing perspective and insight to help guide Sheffield’s response to the pandemic. The Board fulfils the role of the Outbreak Control Board for the city as required by Government, with its title reflecting our commitment to prevention first and foremost.  You can read more about the Board and its membership here.

Members of the public can put their questions to Sheffield’s Covid-19 Prevention & Management Board at monthly briefing and Q&A sessions, with the first of these taking place on Friday 28th August between 1pm and 2pm.

These sessions will take the form of a short briefing from the Director of Public Health on the current position in Sheffield, and touch on current hot topics, before opening up to questions from the public.  You can register to ask a question here, or if you want to just watch the session, you can do so here.
