Cheshire councils publish Outbreak Management Plans

3 July 2020

As Covid-19 case numbers decrease and social measures are relaxed across the UK by the Government, the responsibility for protecting our communities from the virus in the future has moved to local authorities.

This week, local authorities in Cheshire explain how they will do this by publishing their Outbreak Management Plans.

The plans aim to protect lives, livelihoods and help the people of Cheshire return to a more normal way of life over the coming months.

They set out how each authority will prevent the spread of the virus by providing high risk settings with public health advice, helping clinically vulnerable to self-isolate, encouraging people with symptoms to get tested and to self-isolate and managing settings to protect communities if local outbreaks occur.

More information on each authority’s plan are available on their respective websites:
