Local Outbreak Plan - Covid-19
Birmingham City Council have released a Local Outbreak Plan to help manage any potential sporadic Covid-19 surges in the region.
The Government instructed all local authorities to devise plans to manage an outbreak which could see schools, businesses or workplaces closed and local lockdown enforced if infection rates were to spike.
Birmingham’s City Council’s Covid-19 Outbreak Control Plan outlines how local knowledge, experience and expertise will be used, to prevent outbreaks and manage the virus over time, as part of the national Test and Trace programme.
The draft plan was approved through the Local Outbreak Engagement Board, a sub-group of the Health and Wellbeing Board, on the 24 June and then approved through delegated chair’s action on the 29 June.
The plan will be reviewed on a regular basis by the Local Outbreak Engagement Board.
