Action cards for outbreak management.

How COVID-19 early outbreak management action cards help fight the virus

The action cards provide instructions to anyone responsible for a business or organisation on what to do in the event of one or more confirmed cases of coronavirus (COVID-19) in your organisation.

These quick-reference guides provide key steps to help you quickly identify, report and respond to any potential COVID-19 outbreak within your local community. A COVID-19 outbreak is more than one confirmed case of COVID-19. Depending on the type of organisation, this may also include ‘possible’ cases of COVID-19.

The action cards have been developed to cover a range of businesses and organisations to provide specific advice on the issues each type of organisation may face now lockdown restrictions have been eased.

They complement existing outbreak control guidance, and signpost to other useful information to help business owners and managers fully understand their responsibilities in the event of an outbreak of COVID-19.

Covid-19 Information posters for holidaymakers by Visit Dorset

The NHS have produced a useful information poster on what holidaymakers need to do if visiting an area and develop COVID symptoms.  The poster is available to download and it would be very much appreciated if you could display this poster within your business to help ensure that your guests / visitors are made aware of the process they need to follow if they fall ill whilst on holiday in Dorset.
