A staggering 20,521 tests were completed as part of the Conservative-led council’s surge testing programme, which took place between Monday 7 and Sunday 20 June, helping to identify 60 positive Covid-19 cases which may have otherwise been missed.
We had a great first week, vaccinating 2,650 local people. There are busy periods in the morning and early evening when the queues get a little longer, so if you don’t want to wait plan your visit during the quieter times from around midday to 3pm.
Extensive surveillance of Covid-19 has identified a small number of cases of the Covid-19 Delta variant that originated in India in Wokingham Borough, that cannot be traced back to international travel.
Welcome news that Conservative led Wokingham Borough Council is extending its pilot scheme to offer rapid Covid-19 tests to private nursery staff and childminders, postal workers, supermarket staff and other critical and keyworkers.
