Local Outbreak Management Plan (LOMP)
In March 2021 all Local Authorities revised their Local Outbreak Control Plans (LOCPs) and the revised version has been called the Local Outbreak Management Plan (LOMP). This is Bexley’s LOMP and takes into account the knowledge and experiences we have gained since the last Bexley LOCP, and reflects all the new tools that are now available to tackle the Covid-19 Pandemic.

Staying COVID-19 Secure in 2020
We confirm we have complied with the government’s guidance on managing the risk of COVID-19
The five steps to safer working together:
- We have carried out a COVID-19 risk assessment and shared the results with the people who work here
- We have cleaning, handwashing and hygiene procedures in line with guidance
- We have taken all reasonable steps to help people work safely from a COVID-19 Secure workplace or work from home
- We have taken all reasonable steps to maintain a 2m distance in the workplace
- Where people cannot keep 2m apart we have ensured at least a 1m distance and taken all the mitigating actions possible to manage transmission risk
