Test regularly to keep Covid-19 under control

Residents in Staffordshire are being urged to follow the latest guidance and get tested regularly to keep Covid-19 under control.

With the seven-day Covid rates in Staffordshire now at 15.1 per 100,000, people are being asked to keep observing hands, face, space and fresh air, and get tested twice a week to prevent the spread of infection and keep rates low.

And with more testing options available, it now easier than ever to get a test in the county.

People without symptoms of Covid-19 can get tests at their local community testing centres, pop-up testing centres which travel around the county, and their local pharmacies.

All testing centres offer walk-in tests, and the option to pick up a pack of tests to take with them, so people can carry out twice-weekly testing in the comfort of their own homes.

Just visit https://maps.test-and-trace.nhs.uk and put in their postcode to find out where their nearest testing centre is.

For people who are experiencing symptoms of Covid-19, government testing sites are available across the county.

Dr Richard Harling, Staffordshire County Council’s Director for Health and Care said:

“Regular testing twice a week helps us to identify the 1 in 3 Covid-19 cases that don’t display any symptoms. This means we can isolate these cases to prevent further spread, and trace anyone who may have been in contact with a positive case. This is crucial in helping to stop the spread of infection, and keeping the case rates low in Staffordshire.

“With so many different options for testing available around the county, it’s never been easier to make testing part of your regular routine. Testing takes around 30 minutes, and gives people who are out and about the peace of mind that they are not unwittingly passing spreading Covid-19. This helps us keep rates low in Staffordshire, keeps businesses open and helps us get back to a more normal way of life.”

Tutbury Community Fund

Dear All,

Some of you may be aware that when the Peveril Heritage Park estate was approved for construction an amount of money was put aside for community improvements, initially in the form of a new community building, but eventually in the form of a 250k fund. The ESBC (East Staffordshire Borough Council) managed 250k Tutbury Community Fund has now opened for applications from eligible organisations.

The application timescales are quite tight, and your Parish Council are pushing to get these extended. However, I urge community groups to consider putting in proposals. You will notice that it is possible to partner with other organisations as part of a bid, be it with a Parish Council, Borough Council, company, charity etc in order to strengthen bids where perhaps additional project management experience would be beneficial; feel free to approach the Parish Council if you would believe partnering with us would be useful.

Regards,
Russell Lock
