Guidance for organisations and businesses

Guidance is being created by City and Hackney Public Health as part of our Covid-19 local outbreak control plan. This provides information for prevention, mitigation and control of Covid-19 in various settings listed below.

This guidance is intended to keep the setting safe and enables key individuals to know what to do in the event of symptomatic cases of Covid-19 in their setting.

We explain how the test and trace system works locally in relation to symptomatic individuals and to the setting. We also describe how support is activated by Public Health England London Coronavirus Response Cell (PHE LCRC) and City and Hackney Public Health with multi-agency partners.

  • PHE action cards on reporting an early outbreak includes information for places of worship, rough sleeper settings and workplaces

You can request support or raise a query via a centralised email service testandtrace@hackney.gov.uk, which directs queries to the relevant teams within the Council and the City of London Corporation.

If your query is out of office hours please contact PHE LCRC team on lcrc@phe.gov.uk or 0300 303 0450.

Please note that guidance is accurate at the time of publication and should be used in tandem with national guidance.
