Here is your chance to quiz Sheffield Council about its handling of Covid-19

Sheffield Council is due to hold its first ever public meeting of the Preventing and Managing Covid-19 Board and is asking people to submit questions.

Thursday, 27th August 2020, 4:45 pm

The Board was set in July up to look at the next stage of Covid-19 emergency, including what would happen during a local lockdown.

It has a number of key aims including preventing the spread of the virus, knowing what is happening in communities, responding to outbreaks if and when they occur and developing confidence in partners and residents that they have a plan.

It is made up of leading councillors, the director for public health and representatives from various groups.
