Extensive surveillance of Covid-19 identified a case on the border of Oldbury and Tipton for the variant first discovered in South Africa. Extra testing in this area has now been completed.

If you still have a home test that you haven't returned, please post it back using the instructions on the kit.

We want to thank all of the residents in the area for their support and getting behind this testing programme - whether you completed a home test or you came for a test at PureGym in Dudley Port.

Testing takes pressure off the NHS and helps keep the borough safe. Although this extra testing programme in Oldbury and Tipton has now been completed, you can still access rapid tests for free if you have no symptoms or get an NHS test if you do have symptoms.
