Local Outbreak Control Plan

Local Outbreak Control Plan [PDF document]

Public Health officials in Darlington have developed a plan for any local outbreaks of Covid-19 in the borough. The council is focused on restoring services and supporting the community in recovery. The plan is an essential part of that recovery. The plan covers a variety of different settings, and measures to prevent and reduce the spread of Covid-19 in Darlington.

The local outbreak control plan is linked closely to the NHS Test and Trace service. It outlines how the council and partners will work together to prevent and control Covid-19 at a population level and in complex settings and communities. The seven key areas of the plan are:

Care homes and schools
High risk places, locations and communities
Local testing capacity
Contact tracing in complex settings
Data integration
Vulnerable people
