Translators without Borders have produced a very useful table which translates 186 words and phrases associated with COVID-19 into 35 different languages. It also provides you with a definition of each term and it is searchable by term and languages, making it easy to navigate.
Designed as a Progressive Web App, it can be opened on computers as well as phones and tablets, and if it is installed or bookmarked, the authors says it can also be used when offline.

Government’s Updated Guidance for Safely Re-opening Multi-Purpose Buildings
The Government has recently updated its guidance for those managing community centres, village halls and similar facilities on safely re-opening multi-purpose buildings light of the Coronavirus.
Community centres, village halls, and other multi-use community facilities support a wide range of local activity. Their communal nature, however, also makes them places that are vulnerable to the spread of COVID-19.
Updated by Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government, this information is for those managing multi-use community facilities, and signposts to relevant guidance on a range of different activities that can take place in these spaces, which is in line with the Government’s roadmap to ease the existing measures to tackle the pandemic.
