The PCR testing centre at Saltwells Education centre will be operational until close of play today. The centre will continue to offer rapid symptom-free testing, within the main building. Councillor Nicolas Barlow, cabinet member elect for health and adult social care, said:

"We’re are continuing to support NHS test and trace with their important work. Anyone who is symptomatic must book a PCR test at one of the sites, even if they have been vaccinated.

"People who have no symptoms can play their part by following government guidance and continuing to have twice weekly symptom-free tests."

Testing for people with coronavirus symptoms is also available on foot in locations in Dudley, Lye and Stourbridge. Further details of testing locations can be found online.
