While the roll out of the vaccine has brought hope, it will be several months before everyone is vaccinated and many more months before the full benefit - so that's why we are keeping testing, even if you have had the vaccine.
In an effort to get as many people in the county as possible in getting regular Covid tests, Staffordshire County Council have opened up their Test & Collect offer to everyone who wants to collect a pack, subject to availability.
You can collect these from the test centres at the Seabridge Centre (8am-2pm), on Keele Science park (2.30-7pm) or, like me, on the Ryecroft (2.30-7pm).
We know that one in three people who have the virus show no symptoms, so it is important we identify more of the “silent spreaders” of the virus if we are to break the chain of infection.
Eligible households who are unable to collect home tests can order them for delivery.
