Local Covid-19 outbreaks

Where there are local outbreaks of Covid-19, we must act promptly and effectively to contain them - or the infection may spread again, putting lives at risk. If those outbreaks involve large numbers of people, it may be necessary to close down buildings or wider locations in order to halt the spread of the infection.

Coronavirus (COVID-19): information for farmers, landowners and rural businesses

We have set up an Outbreak Control Hub - a multi-disciplinary team, comprising experienced Public Health, Health, Social Care and Environmental Health professionals. This team will work to prevent infection, contain outbreaks and implement protective measures.

It is really important to emphasise that particular measures will only be taken where it is absolutely necessary to do so - and we will need your full support when these situations occur.
