Reporting and containing outbreaks of coronavirus

Government has issued new guidance for businesses and organisations on how to recognise, contain and report incidents of coronavirus (COVID-19).

COVID-19 early outbreak management information has been created to make sure that people who run businesses or organisations:

  • know how to recognise and report an incident of coronavirus (COVID-19)
  • are aware of measures local health protection teams may advise in order to contain it.

The information is contained within ‘action cards’ that have been designed for specific situations where an outbreak could occur – for example in a café or restaurant.

Guidance can be found here.
