We have written an outbreak control plan, which will help us, along with other organisations, to manage any local outbreaks.
Why we need an outbreak plan is because:
- We want to keep our residents as safe as we can from COVID-19 until better treatments and/or a vaccine is available.
- The initial phase of COVID-19 was countrywide. As national restrictions are lifted, sporadic cases are likely which will need local action to prevent spread.
- Building on local knowledge and trusted partnerships our local plan adds to national programmes.
If you think someone has COVID-19 in your workplace, school or other setting, please contact the council on 01628 683802 (Monday–Friday 9am-5pm) and for urgent referrals on Saturday and Sunday between 9am to 5pm, please email Env.Health@RBWM.gov.uk
If you have symptoms, stay home and contact NHS Test & Trace to get tested: www.nhs.uk/coronavirus.
