Outbreak Control Plan

The local Outbreak Control Plan describes Cumbria's approach to managing outbreaks of COVID-19. It sets out how, in co-ordination with the national NHS Test and Trace system, the county will manage the ongoing risk posed by COVID-19 through:

  • public information
  • infection prevention and control
  • case finding
  • testing and contact tracing
  • outbreak management 
  • and, if necessary, implementation of local restrictions.

The plan also explains who will make decisions about local measures, and how they will be made, including the important role of local Health Protection Boards.

It is in 3 parts:

  • Part 1 describes the overall strategy and approach being taken
  • Part 2 sets out the detail of the operating procedures that each bit of the local system will follow
  • Part 3 lists key contact details that may be required by people responding to incidents and outbreaks.

Parts 1 and 2:

The plan reflects a multi-agency response to COVID-19. As such it has been developed through the Cumbria Local Resilience Forum (CLRF) and forms part of the overall Cumbria Emergency Plan (CEP) framework.
