An important part of minimise and manage any future spread of Covid-19 is the speed at which people can be tested and isolation measures put in place, should an outbreak occur.
The mobile testing unit, previously at Oxstalls Tennis Centre in Gloucester, is now available at other locations across the country. The mobile unit has meant hundreds more tests are available each day it is operating.

Co-op Stores - Coronavirus Support

7th April 2020

You may or may not be aware that the CO-OP Stores are teaming up with local volunteering organisations to allow food shopping to be delivered to the most vulnerable people in their area.

We have received a lovely recommendation from Irena of Leonard Stanley Parish Council "I would like to acknowledge the fantastic help given by the Co-op in Stonehouse, where those residents can email/ring them and they will pick, pack and give me a call to collect their orders."

Residents are able to phone their local store and the Co-op staff are able to take a click and collect style payment over the phone so that no money needs to change hands between residents and volunteers. The shopping will therefore already be paid for prior to collection.

Below is a link to the main Co-op website where you can find your local store contact details and get updates on the support they are providing at this time.

If you have a store near your area or within a few miles please do contact the store manager and find out how you can work together to support those most in need.

Click here to find your local Co-op store

Please feel free to share this information or if you have any other tips and tricks that are working well for you please do let us know so that we can pass them on.

Thank you again for all the work you are doing within your local communities at this time it is very much appreciated.
