We have received a good response to the distribution of Covid-19 community testing kits in Uttlesford. The initiative was part of a national pilot to identify those who don't have any symptoms and ensure they isolate to stop the spread of the virus.

We now welcome the arrival of a new rapid testing centre, which Essex County Council has opened in Saffron Walden today (25 January). This will enable residents who do not have symptoms of Covid-19 to get faster results for their tests.

Bookings must be made in advance via the booking link: www.essex.gov.uk/getting-tested-for-covid-19/if-you-dont-have-symptoms.

The community test sites for people to pick up a PCR home testing kit will be available until Thursday 28 January or until available stocks last. The government has confirmed it will not be supplying any more PCR tests to councils.

Residents can pick up a PCR home testing kit from Turpin’s Indoor Bowling Club, Peaslands Road, Saffron Walden CB11 3EG or Rowena Davey Centre, Chequers Lane, Dunmow CM6 1EQ (Monday to Thursday, 9am to 5pm this week only).

The sites will continue operate as a drop-off only facility until 4 February for residents to return their completed tests.

Anyone who has symptoms for Covid-19 – a high temperature, new or continuous cough, or a loss or change of taste or smell – should book a test through the national booking system. Further information is available on the NHS website www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/symptoms/
