Urgent call for volunteer assistance at local COVID testing hub

Due to the large number of Vaccine Hubs, urgent support is required at 1 of our testing hubs within the region.

The roles range from queue management, registration assistant (welcoming people to the testing site), test operative (actually processing the testing sample, in full PPE, training provided), result logger (logs result), evaluation (asks people why they’ve come, would they come again) and general role (would include cleaning).

Fen Road, Cambridge
The test site is open Thursday 28th to Sunday 31st 10- 6pm.  Staff would be expected to arrive by 9.15/9.30 latest.  The last test is 5.30pm, so we would hope staff could finish by 6.15-6.30.

If you are in a position where you can help support the testing hub, please contact Nikitta Vanterpool – Nikitta.vanterpool@cambridgeshire.gov.uk

Play Equipment available for use

Councillors carried out a risk assessment this morning following new government guidance received after the end of the most recent lockdown and have decided that the play equipment, with the exception (for the moment) of the small play house and the outdoor fitness equipment, can be used. Please remember to follow the national guidance of social distancing and hand cleaning before and after use.  It is not possible for Councillors to regularly clean the equipment themselves and have no staff to do this so ask all residents to take responsibility for this themselves.  Once updated guidance is received regarding the pieces of equipment currently out of bounds Cllrs will review their closure too.
