UPDATE: Community Testing Across Staffordshire – Good Availability!

Staffordshire County Council is asking:

  • All residents who need to be out and about during the lockdown to have regular Covid-19 tests.
  • Anybody in a Covid hotspot area to book a test.

Staffordshire residents are now able to drop into Community Testing Centres to get a rapid Covid-19 test.

Walk ins are subject to availability at each individual site – to secure a slot, booking on our community testing sites page is still recommended. People with symptoms or those who have been asked to self-isolate as a close contact of a Covid case should not attend.
