New translated health guidance assets, including information on test and trace
Key coronavirus information and guidance has been translated into 15 languages, and we have developed free social media assets to make sure this information reaches communities. You can find all of the assets in the relevant language folders here, including the latest health guidance and information on test and trace.
As the Government’s guidance evolves, we’ll look to develop this work to include further messages and resources to help communities.
