Covid-19 community testing station amends its hours

Release date: 
Wednesday, 16 September, 2020

The Covid-19 community testing station opposite Burnley bus station is amending its opening hours with immediate effect, following a decision made by Lancashire County Council and Lancashire Resilience Forum, as reported by Abdul Razaq, consultant in public health at County Hall, to the county council's health scrutiny committee earlier this week.

The Centenary Way station will remain open 10am to 3pm from Saturday to Wednesday every week; it will be closed on Thursday and Friday.
 
A Burnley Council spokesman said: "The Burnley testing station is in high demand from local residents. It has dealt with, on average, 300 tests a day since it opened on 10th August (the highest number of any community testing facility in Lancashire). But as reported in the media, the national testing system is stretched.
 
"We are grateful to the county council and the Lancashire Resilience Forum that, while the hours of operation are reducing, the station will remain open for the foreseeable future."
