We're now in a new phase of our response to the coronavirus pandemic. It's never been so important to identify local outbreaks rapidly and take action to control them and prevent them from spreading.
We have worked with partners to develop Local Outbreak Control Plans. These plans explain how we have put in place measures to identify and contain outbreaks to protect your health.
Our Outbreak Control Plans are working documents and will be updated regularly to ensure they're up to date. They are focused primarily on controlling outbreaks. However, preventing spread of the virus is still critical to prevent outbreaks in Warrington and to avoid a second wave of the pandemic.
You need to continue to follow national and local guidance on staying at home if symptomatic. Please also continue to observe social distancing, washing hands, and using face coverings in public places.
Through our plans, we will ensure:
- we are proactive in dealing with outbreaks, to prevent them from spreading further
- we identify outbreaks early on, by responding to alerts about suspected cases
- we support people and settings by providing practical and up-to-date guidance and support on infection control
