COVID-19 hotspots in Staffordshire
Please see the below list of Covid-19 hotspots and supporting Community Testing sites in Staffordshire.
Testing is available for all residents in Staffordshire who do not have any symptoms of coronavirus. Residents who need to be out and about in Staffordshire during the lockdown, for example for work or caring responsibilities, are being urged to have regular Covid-19 tests.
The county council is also identifying areas each week which have seen the biggest increase in cases and is especially urging everyone in these ‘hotspot’ locations to get tested.
Staffordshire residents are now able to walk in to one of our community testing sites 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.
You are allowed to leave home to take a test.
If there is no availability, you can book a traditional test at one of the national sites at www.nhs.uk/coronavirus and choose the option “my council has asked me to book a test.
Anyone with symptoms should only book a national test. Anyone who is self-isolating as a close contact should only book a test if they develop symptoms and this should be through the national system only.
