People in Burntwood without symptoms are being urged to take a coronavirus test.

Community testing is taking place a Burntwood Leisure Centre next week.

Staffordshire County Council is hoping that a programme of mass testing will help bring infection rates down by identifying “silent spreaders”.

Testing will be available between 10am and 4pm from 18th to 21st January. Appointments need to be booked in advance online.

People with symptoms can continue to book via the national testing portal.

  1. To help spread the load of delivering them. No-one is obliged to take up the invitation and some people are happy to wait for their local appointment, whereas others are using the opportunity to have the vaccination a little bit sooner.

  2. Remember that if you go day to Telford for your first jab you are supposed to go to the same place for your top up jab

  3. I would just like to say thank you to the NHS staff at Burntwood leisure centre yesterday when l went for a COVID test which l am glad to say was negative,The organisation was brilliant with a timed appointment via the on line service which was easy to do.
    The social distancing was spot on and l had my results in less than thirty minutes.
