Public Health colleagues at Nottinghamshire County Council, have asked me to send the letter below to all parents, carers and staff this afternoon.

The purpose of this post is to communicate to staff, parents and families the presence of a new Mobile Testing Unit (MTU) based at Central Avenue Car Park, Worksop (S80 1EW), which will be in place from Monday 13th July to Wednesday 15th July 2020 (inclusive). The MTU is being deployed to allow easy access to tests for any residents that have symptoms of Covid-19, in response to rates being slightly higher in the district compared with the rest of the county. We must emphasise that there is no cause for concern and that rates in Bassetlaw and Nottinghamshire as a whole are still lower than many parts of the country and continue to reduce.

We are also keen to take this opportunity to communicate the national ‘Stay Alert’ messages to help provide clarity on what the most up to date guidance is and to ensure everybody is doing what they can to help to continue to control the virus.

Thank you in advance for your support.
