Staffordshire County Council release Covid-19 Outbreak Control plan

The Covid-19 pandemic is the biggest peacetime crisis that the UK has faced in living memory and almost 50,000 people who have tested positive from the virus have sadly died.

In Staffordshire, the county council, our partners and our communities have pulled together liken ever before and we remain committed to doing everything we can to reduce the risk of a second peak of infections in our county.

With lockdown easing, it is fantastic to see more children back at school, more people back at work and more businesses opening their doors, but it is important than ever that we stick to the rules. This means washing your hands regularly, sticking to the 2m social distancing whenever you can and self-isolating and booking a test if you have any Covid-19 symptoms.

As part of the Test and Trace Service, if you are contacted by an NHS tracer because you have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for the virus, you must self-isolate for 14 days, even if you have no symptoms.

In Staffordshire, we have developed a Local Outbreak Control Plan to help identify outbreaks, contain the cases and stop the wider spread of infections.

To make it work we simply cannot afford to let our guard down now.

We are working to providing this in an accessible format, please bear with us and we will have a new version available soon.
