Community testing information
There is currently limited availability of both Lateral Flow Device (LFD) tests and PCR tests. This is a national issue and Staffordshire is being affected like everywhere else.
The Government has announced that 100,000 critical workers will receive daily tests from January 10. These will include staff working in places such as police and fire control rooms and border forces. This is separate to the public allocation and relevant organisations are being contacted directly. In Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent, partners have taken proactive steps to identify the key areas where lateral flow tests may be required to protect critical services, like home care visits.
Community testing will continue in Staffordshire but this will be limited and supervised testing only, not kit collection.
A list of community testing locations until Saturday 15 January can be found on our website.
