What to do if you have a potential outbreak at your business

The government has developed a number of ‘action cards’ or quick-reference  guides outlining the key steps to help you quickly identify, report and respond to any potential Covid-19 outbreak (one or more confirmed cases reported to you by employees, visitors or NHS Test and Trace) at your business.   

Being involved and taking a proactive approach to report will help to keep your business open whenever possible if there is an outbreak. 

The action cards have been developed to cover a range of business and organisations to provide specific advice on what each type of business may face. 

The action cars complement existing outbreak control guidance, and signpost to other useful information to help you manage and understand your responsibilities in the event of an outbreak.

When to use the early outbreak management action cards 

If a confirmed case of COVID-19 has occurred in your business   or organisation, go to the reporting an outbreak resource site to find the relevant type of organisation and follow the instructions on the action card. The cards are designed to be printed or downloaded to keep on hand in your business or organisation. 

The guidance working safely during coronavirus (COVID-19) has practical steps to take, including how you must carry out a COVID-19 risk assessment for your organisation.
