Joint Biosecurity Centre Action Cards now published

The JBC has now published Action Cards to provide the latest instructions to anyone responsible for businesses or organisations (e.g. café, hairdresser or place of worship) to identify, report and respond to coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreaks. They have been developed to cover a range of businesses and organisations to provide specific advice on the issues each type of organisation may face now lockdown restrictions have been eased. The cards are designed to be printed or downloaded to keep on-hand in a business or organisation. The Cards provide the owners and managers of organisations a single point of access to the right information to ensure local Health Protection Teams can be notified in a timely manner by all sectors. The Cards complement and support existing local or sector specific guidance and are not intended to replace existing guidance or the expertise of local public health professionals. It will be a process of continuous learning and improvement as more people use the Action Cards, and we learn more about what responses are most effective.
