As part of the COVID-19 response, local authorities were required to publish a local outbreak control plan by 30 June 2020. Working with key partners, particularly West Sussex district and borough councils, Healthwatch, Public Health England and the NHS, we created the West Sussex COVID-19 Local Outbreak Control Plan. You can find the plan in the supporting documents below.
As national restrictions are removed we continue to work with our partners to deal with outbreaks that require locally led action. The West Sussex COVID-19 Local Outbreak Control Plan details how local, regional and national organisations will work together to prevent and reduce transmission in West Sussex. It is based on tried and tested practices of breaking chains of transmission and preventing and containing outbreaks.
The Local Outbreak Control Plan changes as national guidance varies. It is currently being revised following the publication of the government's new COVID-19 Contain Framework.
