Local Outbreak Control plan launched

Updated: Nov 16, 2020

As part of the Government’s national strategy to manage and control the pandemic, every area in England needs to develop its own Local Outbreak Control Plan for COVID-19.

In Cambridgeshire and Peterborough our plan - launched this week - builds on tried and tested existing plans for controlling other infectious diseases like tuberculosis.

It relies on working closely with our local communities to reduce the risk of people contracting the disease in the first place by following clear public health messages, but if they do to establish systems so new cases can be identified quickly and reduce the likelihood of them spreading.

Where clusters of new COVID-19 cases arise our plan will make sure that we identify them swiftly, and working with Public Health England Health Protection Team, put measures in place to control them, so we can support the continued lifting of lockdown restrictions and the continued return to normal life.

You can see the plan and lots of other helpful information explaining the ‘test and trace’ process on the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough websites.


 What has become the HemingfordHub was first proposed in 2017 as a test case for how lonely or isolated people in the village could be supported by the community care sector and NHS. The Hub was recognised as a community group and received funding in November 2019. Just as the team was preparing to launch the Hub, Covid-19 happened..

As well as committee members, we now have more than 100 volunteers supporting both villages. If you would like to join them to help during the Covid-19 pandemic or in other ways, please get in touch.
