Surge testing in Lancashire

Surge testing in Lancashire

Lancashire (excluding Blackpool) is getting enhanced support from central government to ramp up testing and offering the vaccine in more convenient locations in coronavirus hotspots, as cases of the Delta variant, are continuing to rise across Lancashire. 

Everyone in Lancashire, including children, is now being strongly encouraged to take a Covid-19 polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test, whether they are showing symptoms or not.

The surge testing arrangements are in place as a preventative measure, by getting tested you are helping us to identify positive cases and stop further transmission amongst your loved ones and your community.

People in these areas should also continue to make use of free twice-weekly rapid tests, commonly known as lateral flow devices, alongside the PCR test as part of surge testing.

Are you eligible for your Covid vaccine?

Anyone who is over 18, subject to eligibility, can also now book their covid vaccine, over the coming weeks we will be offering the vaccine in more convenient locations.
