Migrants in Italian town translate ministerial guidelines on COVID-19


Italy is going through a difficult period. Both Italians and migrants living in the country are facing the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus). In order to help migrants be aware of the situation and take precautions, the students of Frisoun School, an Italian language school near the city of Modena, have decided to contribute to raising awareness by translating the guidelines published by Ministry of Health into 14 different languages.

These translated guidelines are now circulating in the public, and the school has been commended for its work. The Frisoun School was set up ten years ago by the Association Giunchiglia-11 and the Intercultural Centre of the Municipality of Nonantola. The school provides free language courses at various levels, as well as a preparatory course for obtaining a driver’s license.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: The translated guidelines are shared on this website solely to provide an example of outreach to migrant communities during this health emergency. Please speak to a medical professional if you need health-related advice.
