The NHS Test and Trace service primary objectives are to control the COVID-19 rate of reproduction (R), reduce the spread of infection and save lives. This will help return life to as normal as possible, for as many as people as possible, in a way that is safe, protects our health and care systems and releases our economy.
Achieving these objectives requires a co-ordinated effort with local government, NHS and other relevant organisations at the centre of outbreak response. Local authorities are required to work with partners to develop Local Outbreak Management Plans which build on existing health protection plans and put in place measures to identify and contain outbreaks and protect the public's health. Below is a copy of Surrey's Local Outbreak Management Plan. This is regularly reviewed and updated in line with national policy and guidance.
