IMPORTANT INFORMATION for residents of Fernhill Heath...
Cases of the new South African variant of Covid-19 have been found in the WR3 Fernill Heath area of Worcestershire.
I encourage adult residents in the area to get a test over the next few days. Testing will be available from tomorrow at the Mobile Testing Unit at The White Hart pub, Fernhill Heath and more testing sites will be made available over the next few days.
Please be extra vigilant and abide by lockdown restrictions in order to help reduce the risk of catching or spreading the virus.
Thank you to Worcestershire County Council, the Public Health team and everyone involved in responding to this issue and getting the new testing up and running so quickly.
