My Department has not incurred any expenditure on advertising in national newspapers, regional newspapers, national radio, regional and local radio stations and across social media platforms on COVID-19 awareness raising campaigns.

However, in 2020, my Department spent €192,907 on public information material as part of the Government's response to the COVID-19 pandemic. This expenditure related to the printing and translation, including into braille and sign language, of an information brochure on the Community Call initiative which was delivered to every home; and the design of the COVID-19 Guide for the Bereaved.
