Barnet local COVID-19 outbreak control plan

Barnet's local outbreak control plan outlines 7 steps to prevent, control and manage COVID-19 incidents and outbreaks. It describes our co-ordinated local response and it has been developed with a wide range of stakeholders and overseen by Barnet Health Protection Board.

The aim of this plan is to:

  • build on existing plans to prevent and manage outbreaks in specific settings
  • ensure the challenges of COVID-19 are understood
  • consider the impact on local communities
  • ensure the wider system works together to contain the spread of infection locally

This Plan will be regularly updated, as further evidence emerges.
