Accommodation and business flyers

The Somerset COVID-19 Local Engagement Board has devised a Local Outbreak Management Plan for Coronavirus (Covid-19) detailing actions to take in the event of an outbreak.

As part of this work they have worked with South West partners to devise flyers and posters to help you, your employees and customers know what to do when a suspected or confirmed case of COVID-19 is reported.

Please download these documents and keep them handy.

Phone the Public Health England Health Protection Team immediately for any suspected or confirmed cases on 0300 303 8162 who can talk you through the next steps.
