The Covid-19 Outbreak Control Plan is our approach to managing the pandemic in North Yorkshire.
Using local knowledge, experience and expertise it aims to prevent, manage and eliminate the virus over time as part of the national Test and Trace programme.
Led by our Director of Public Health, this will see public health experts work with the NHS, Public Health England, the community and voluntary sector and other local government colleagues to support individuals, communities, businesses, education and care homes settings to understand how to prevent outbreaks via good hygiene and social distancing measures. It also sets out how the county will respond when outbreaks occur and the measures necessary to shut them down.
Outbreak Management Plan report - March 2021
In light of the publication of the government’s roadmap for exiting national lockdown on 22 February 2021, the accompanying refresh of the Covid-19 Contain Framework and an increasing focus on Covid variants, local authorities have been asked to review and update their Local Outbreak Management Plans in order to ensure they remain fit for purpose. This updated plan has been reviewed and agreed with partners through the North Yorkshire Outbreak Management Advisory Board (pdf / 2 MB).
Covid-19 prohibition orders
As part of our role in managing the virus, we issue prohibition orders to prevent events that do not adhere to the latest government guidance and could result in the virus spreading. Applicants have the right to appeal directions we issue.
