City and Hackney COVID-19 local outbreak control plan

The current Coronavirus pandemic has underscored the importance of working together, in partnership, to respond to outbreaks of infectious disease.

In particular, it has highlighted the importance of having a clear plan and of everyone being aware of each others’ roles and responsibilities in the event of a pandemic.

We already have the pandemic flu plan. This COVID-19 local outbreak control plan has been written to ensure that we have clarity on operational roles and responsibilities for each responding service and organisation, in response to local clusters, outbreaks or cases in high-risk areas, communities or settings within Hackney and/or the City of London.

This local plan supports and is supported by national and regional plans and national guidance. In developing this plan we have drawn on learning from elsewhere, both nationally and internationally, as well as the specific work of the London-wide Chief Executives Group.
