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.
