The Covid-19 outreach team will be in Corby tomorrow (Thursday)

This is the second at the location, with last week’s well received by Asda staff and customers.

The outreach will be easily recognisable by the van with messaging on it, pull up banners and team members wearing NHS branded high vis jackets.

Every effort is being made to ensure that Northamptonshire residents are as safe as possible for this event.

Social distancing will be adhered to, with the team wearing face coverings as well as visors.

Team members have to undergo regular LFT testing as part of this outreach work.

The event is one of many running across the country, so if you want further information on testing, vaccination or how to keep yourself and those you care about safe visit Asda Corby on Thursday.

Please if you are showing any COVID 19 symptoms: a high temperature, a new, continuous cough or a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste don’t attend this event but book a PCR test by calling 119 or booking a test online

Similar events are being planned in other areas of Northamptonshire during the month including Wellingborough on Thursday, May 27.
