Preventing and controlling COVID-19 infection

02 Jul 2020

The council has produced new general (non-clinical) guidance on preventing and controlling COVID-19 infection in the workplace.

This has been written based on guidance from the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC), Public Health England (PHE), NHS England, Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and the Association for Public Service Excellence (APSE).

Links to their own guidance can be found on the last page of the document called ‘Useful Links’.

The document provides practical advice for all council services (including schools, hostels, and frontline teams), both for those operating in the borough now and for any future return to office-based working, including:

  • transmission routes
  • how to control infection
  • general cleaning of surfaces and vehicles
  • laundry
  • contact with/cleaning up bodily fluids
  • changes for First Aiders providing treatment at work
