The government has now transferred responsibility for local outbreaks of Coronavirus to local authorities. Hull City Council is ready for this change and has developed an Outbreak Management Plan which sets out what their responsibilities are and how they will manage them.
This draft plan has been signed off by the Director of Public Health, the Chief Executive and the Leader to guide our work to prevent and contain outbreaks and it will be submitted for approval by Hull City Council Cabinet Monday 27 July 2020.
The plan, developed by Hull City Council and its local partners in the city, describes how Coronavirus will be controlled at a local level in Hull. It defines the council’s role and how it will work with partners across the city to reduce risks of virus transmission, prevent outbreaks and deal with them when they occur.
The plan was developed in response to the government transferring local responsibility for Coronavirus to councils and their partners. It explains who will lead the work and the organisations involved; places, people and situations which may be at greater risk; and what will happen when Hull has cases or outbreaks.
