COVID-19: communication of public health information


The Covid-19 Recovery Committee is undertaking an inquiry into COVID-19: communication of public health information. 

The inquiry will have the following aims: 

  • To understand the challenges, including the existence of any misinformation and disinformation, faced by government in communicating public health messages in the pandemic to date and to consider what could be done by government to tackle these issues going forward;

  • To consider whether public health information about COVID-19 is accessible to and meets the needs of specific audiences going forward, including people in the shielding category and communities where there has been below average uptake in vaccination to date;

  • To understand how scientific information about personal health risks and risks to wider society can be best used to inform decision-making and public health messaging.
