Variant in Leek

Current Situation

Surge Testing has now been completed but we're monitoring the situation closely. 

Schools and local communities in Leek and Cheddleton have been praised for their support of local Covid surge testing, as part of efforts to manage a major outbreak of the Delta Variant of Concern.

Around 7,000 people were tested in schools, at community pop-ups and in door-to-door testing last week and the number of positive cases has now fallen sharply.

The vaccine pop-up clinic at Leek Moorlands Hospital enabled people aged 18 and over to have the first dose of the vaccine. It was very well attended and as a result the residents of the four Leek wards and Cheddleton accounted for a total of 2,123 first dose vaccinations in the latest 14 day period - 50% of the Staffordshire Moorlands total.
