Extra COVID-19 support for Lancashire
A package of enhanced support – including surge testing and increased vaccinations – is available to Blackpool, Fylde and Wyre as cases of COVID-19 continue to rise.
Lancashire is getting enhanced support from central government to ramp up testing and offering the vaccine in more convenient locations in coronavirus hotspots.
Cases are rising rapidly in parts of Lancashire – driven by the Delta variant – mainly in the east but spreading in central Lancashire and other parts of the county.
Everyone in Lancashire, including children, is now being strongly encouraged to take a COVID-19 polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test, whether they are showing symptoms or not.
By using PCR testing, positive results can be sent for genomic sequencing at specialist laboratories, helping us to identify variant of concern (VOC) cases and their spread.
