COVID-19 has impacted on the lives of everyone in our city. The collective effort, expertise and commitment of partners from across the system has helped to limit the impact of COVID-19 in Wolverhampton so far.

Together, we have worked tirelessly to ensure that our health and care system can continue to manage the unprecedented demands that COVID-19 has placed upon us. We have also made sure that our most vulnerable residents are supported to stay safe within their local community. 

But there is still a lot to do. As lockdown measures are eased, and we move into the next phase of living with COVID-19, our overriding priority remains to save lives. 

Every Local Authority is required to produce a Local Outbreak Control Plan specific to COVID-19. Our plan is our local commitment to preparedness and our response to the challenges associated with living with COVID-19.

The aim of the Wolverhampton Outbreak Control Plan is to:

  • Reduce the spread of COVID-19 infection and save lives
  • Help as many people as possible return to normal life, in a way that is safe, protects our health and care systems and supports our economy to recover.

The Outbreak Control Plan builds on existing health protection activity that has been ongoing throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and formalises measures to protect and promote the health of our city in this context.
