People in parts of Lichfield and Burntwood are being urged to get tested for coronavirus after areas were added to a county-wide hotspot list.

Boley Park, Boney Hay, Chasetown, Curborough, Fazeley and Longdon are on the weekly list published by Staffordshire County Council.

Residents in those areas are now being asked to get tested at community facilities at Lichfield City FC and Burntwood Leisure Centre even if they have no symptoms.

People can book slots via the online system.

  1. It is not suprising that covid is increasing in these areas as people are doing just what they like. Family living opposite are going away for weekends,having visitors and going out often. Not social distancing or wearing masks. People living next door had 2 different lots of visitors last weekend staying more that 3 hours each. Why should the rest of us bother to obey rules?
