Coronavirus information regularly changes so we update this section with the latest guidance as soon as we can.

Local Outbreak Control Plan

How we will respond to local outbreaks.

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 this in the supporting documents below.

As national restrictions alter 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 changes. Following the government's new COVID-19 contain framework, the plan has been updated and the appendices are in the process of being updated.
