The council’s response to the pandemic has evolved and will continue to do so due to changes in circumstances. Nationally it was felt that all Local Authority Outbreak Management Plans needed to be reviewed due to a stronger focus on Enhanced contact tracing and variants of concern. The aim of the plan is to:
Reduce the spread of infection in Herefordshire, minimise the number of cases, protect our health and care system, and save lives;
Support settings experiencing a new localised outbreak or complex single cases to mitigate the consequences of and help to keep as many services and businesses going as possible in a way that is safe and releases our economy; and
Give the public confidence that we are able to respond appropriately to outbreaks of Covid-1 in order to minimise anxiety.
