Knowsley Local Outbreak Management Plan and Board

The Knowsley Local Outbreak Management Plan has been developed to ensure that the Borough is well prepared to effectively contain the Covid-19 virus and reduce its spread in the community.

The plan describes the co-ordinated efforts of the Council and partners to prevent outbreaks of Covid19 and how we will support the national NHS Test and Trace programme. Further details about Test and Trace can be found here.

It includes details of preventative steps we can all take to help to reduce the spread of infection, identification an escalation of an outbreak and the governance arrangements should an outbreak be declared in Knowsley. You can download the plan here.

The plans for Knowsley are robust to deal with any cases locally and a Knowsley Outbreak Management Board has been established which includes representatives from the Council, Merseyside Police and Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service, who will oversee the plan and share updates where appropriate.
