Covid History at Winterwood;
The 1st known case of covid-19 at Winterwood was on 19/11/20, and the first affected people started  returning to work from 30/11/20. The Farming side of the operation has had just one +ve test result on 18/01/21 and was contained to just the one employee, and we quickly identified that this initial infection was from outside the Company.
*   An ‘Outbreak’ was defined by PHE in November 2020, as more than 1 active case, but has since revised its definition several times in order to cope with the varying workload it gave PHE.
Current definition can be found at;    https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/covid-19-epidemiological-definitions-of-outbreaks-and-clusters/covid-19-epidemiological-definitions-of-outbreaks-and-clusters-in-particular-settings  
and definition as at 14/06/21 is as below;

Two or more test-confirmed cases of COVID-19 among individuals associated with a specific non-residential setting with illness onset dates within 14 days, and one of:

  • identified direct exposure between at least 2 of the test-confirmed cases in that setting (for example under one metre face to face, or spending more than 15 minutes within 2 metres) during the infectious period of one of the cases
  • when there is no sustained local community transmission – absence of an alternative source of infection outside the setting for the initially identified cases
The packhouse side of the operation had 6 cases during all of December, none in January and two in early February (both of which were cleared without any internal spread), and none since.
