Covid-19 early outbreak management action cards

Covid-19 early outbreak management action cards will help fight the virus

The action cards from GOV.UK provide instructions to anyone responsible for a business or organisation on what to do in the event of one or more confirmed cases of coronavirus (Covid-19) in your organisation.
