Covid testing for Rolleston-on-Dove residents

People in Rolleston-on-Dove are being urged to book a coronavirus test after a surge in cases in the village.

The area is reporting a seven-day infection rate greater than 500 per 100,000 people, compared to a rate of fewer than 190 per 100,000 people across East Staffordshire.

To help curb the spread of infection in the area, everyone who lives in Rolleston-on-Dove is being directed to the nearest local testing site is at Burton Town Hall.

People must book their test online at www.nhs.uk/coronavirus or by calling 119, and when asked the reason for booking a test, select “My local council or health protection team has asked me (or someone I live with) to get a test, even though I do not have symptoms.”

A community testing site will also be open at Rolleston Scout Group in Station Road, between 09.30 – 1.30pm on Saturday 31st October, for anyone who is unable to travel into Burton. This testing is for people without symptoms of coronavirus, and a total of 200 spaces are now available.

Booking is live now through the website at https://staffordshire.zipporah.co.uk/TrackAndTrace. Just select the date and venue, and go through the steps to book for your slot. You do not need an NHS number.

Although we encourage people to book online wherever possible, we understand that not everyone in the Parish has access to the internet. Therefore, spaces can also be booked by calling 0300 111 8050 and selecting Option 1.
