COVID-19 outbreak management plan

Our outbreak plan sets out how we will prevent and manage outbreaks of COVID-19 across Trafford so that our residents and communities can live safely through the various phases of the pandemic. It summarises the key roles and responsibilities for controlling Covid-19 in the borough and outlines our local response to the pandemic.

Stay alert

We can all help control the virus if we all stay alert. This means you must:

  • stay at home as much as possible
  • work from home if you can
  • limit contact with other people
  • keep your distance if you go out (2 metres apart where possible)
  • wash your hands regularly

Do not leave home if you or anyone in your household has symptoms.

Public health annual report

Our public health annual report for 2020 is entitled 'Reducing the risk of Covid-19 in Trafford'. This report was written in Autumn 2020, in the second wave of coronavirus. The aim of this report is to give some practical suggestions for action, based on what we know from this and other diseases and conditions. This advice is set in the context of climate change so we need to ensure that our reactions to Covid-19 move us to a cleaner, greener future and a healthier, more resilient population.
