New local alert levels
The government has introduced a new three tiered system of local COVID-19 alert levels in England.
Information on the new local COVID alert levels, Medium, High and Very High, including what they mean in terms of what you can and can't do and why they are being introduced has been published on Gov.uk.
Surrey's Local Outbreak Control Plans
The NHS Test and Trace service primary objectives are to control the COVID-19 rate of reproduction (R), reduce the spread of infection and save lives. This will help return life to as normal as possible, for as many as people as possible, in a way that is safe, protects our health and care systems and releases our economy.
Achieving these objectives requires a co-ordinated effort with local government, NHS and other relevant organisations at the centre of outbreak response. Local authorities are required to work with partners to develop Local Outbreak Control Plans which build on existing health protection plans and put in place measures to identify and contain outbreaks and protect the public's health. Below are copies of the Full Surrey Local Outbreak Control Plan and a summary version. These will be regularly reviewed and updated.
