    Submission of NF02A - suspected or confirmed Covid-19 cases

    You are required to notify the Chief Inspector of a confirmed or suspected outbreak of COVID-19 in your designated centre using a simplified COVID-19 specific notification (NF02A), which appears in portal as “[NF02] – COVID-19 Suspected or confirmed incidence”.
    If you have previously submitted a COVID-19 related NF02A, which remains active, you should not submit a further NF02A notification.
    Scenario 1: I have already submitted an NF02A – what should I do?
    1. Go to draft notifications menu option in portal
    2. Open daily update
    3. Input figures into the four numeric fields
    4. Submit notification
    If you are unsure about previously sending us an NF02A, check notification history for active NF02A notifications. Please note that this update must be submitted each day that the notification remains active, whether the figures have changed or not.
    Scenario 2: I have suspected or confirmed COVID-19 amongst the residents and/ or staff but I have not submitted an NF02A – what should I do?
    1. Go to submit notification menu option in portal
    2. Open [NF02] – COVID-19 Suspected or confirmed incidence
    3. Input data into the four numeric fields
    4. Submit notification
    The daily update will be available tomorrow in your draft notifications.
    Scenario 3: There are no suspected or confirmed cases of COVID-19 amongst the residents or staff in my designated centre – what should I do?
    1. No action required at this time – please so not submit NF02A
