Test and Trace and contacting local health protection teams
The test and trace guidance for businesses has been updated, with a new section related to multiple outbreaks in a workplace.
Under the new guidance, if there is more than one case of COVID-19 associated with a workplace, employers should contact their local health protection team to report the suspected outbreak.
The heath protection team will then:
- undertake a risk assessment
- provide public health advice
- where necessary, establish a multi-agency incident management team to manage the outbreak.
