dc.descriptionIt is important to note the following in relation to this COVID-19 Outbreak Management Plan: • this is an interim document that may change as the situation progresses, • the principles in this plan may be applied to all COVID-19 outbreaks but some of the suggested actions may only be practical when dealing with large outbreaks and where there are adequate resources for implementation. An outbreak of COVID-19 can happen in a variety of settings e.g. the home, community, residential care facilities, hospitals and the workplace. The most up to date surveillance definition of an outbreak of COVID-19 is available on the HPSC website. Due to the variation in settings of outbreaks, the vulnerability of those involved or potential for increased transmission, a more sensitive definition of an outbreak may be used for public health action. For example, in residential care facilities (RCF) a single suspected case of COVID-19 should prompt immediate public health action. Laboratory testing should be arranged as quickly as possible. However, it is not necessary to wait for laboratory test results before beginning initial investigation, contacting Public Health and implementing control measures. For setting specific guidance please see the following supplemental documents: • Interim guidance for the management of COVID-19 in Residential Care Facilities • Supplemental guidance for the management of outbreaks in the acute hospital setting • Supplemental guidance for the management of outbreaks in general community settings – in progress Note: Infection prevention and control precautions guidance should be followed during the preparedness and response phases of all outbreaks.en_US
