Covid communications webinars

As we progress along the Government’s roadmap out of lockdown. communications will continue to play a crucial part in ensuring that councils can support the vaccine roll out and effectively control local outbreaks and variants of concern.

Together with the Local Government Association (LGA), we are organising a series of webinars on the topic to share lessons learned and explore common challenges together.


Surge testing and local outbreaks

Wednesday, 28 April 2021

Our next webinar will look at the lessons learned from previous local outbreaks of COVID-19 and experience of rapidly deploying surge testing. Surrey County Council and Manchester City Council will share their approaches and learnings, alongside colleagues in central government.

You can book your free place via the LGA website.
