ALL areas of Warrington have seen significant increases in new COVID-19 cases according to the latest data from Public Health England, with many more than doubling over seven day period.
The Public Health England coronavirus small area counts are for the seven days ending on the 2/1/2021.
For comparison the numbers for the previous seven days ending on Boxing Day are shown in parentheses.
Meanwhile in a bid to further tackle the rising cases two rapid asymptomatic community testing sites, for people who are not displaying COVID-19 symptoms, are set to open in Warrington from next Monday 11 January.
This testing pilot will help to identify people who are not displaying any coronavirus symptoms but who may still have the virus and could therefore pass it, unknowingly, to others.
The sites have been established by Warrington Borough Council to help test those who cannot stay at home under the current restrictions, such as for those who need to go to work or provide care. (more details below)
