National lockdown: Stay at home

Lateral flow testing

Staffordshire County Council is one of the first areas to pilot the new Lateral Flow Test (LFT).  By widening our offer of testing, we can identify more people who have the virus and need to self-isolate, which in turn stops the spread of infection and reduces the number of cases.

In our first phase of roll out, we are looking to target the tests in several settings including sixth forms, public sector partners, large businesses, care providers, and communities where the case rates are highest. We have already started testing in a number of these settings and we are looking to scale up over the next few weeks.  If you are one of these settings and can fulfil these basic criteria, we are keen to hear from you.

Criteria 

  • Your own Occupational Health Team or staff willing to be trained to oversee the LFT test process 
  • Sufficient space to conduct the tests (following social distancing rules) and area to wait for results 
  • Willingness to test regularly (daily, weekly or fortnightly) and share results with SCC /NHS
