Increases in COVID-19 cases in Wombwell

There has been a concerning rise in COVID-19 cases across Barnsley, particularly in Wombwell. We must do all we can to drive down transmission of the virus to protect our community and avoid local lockdown:
✅ Maintain distancing
✅ Follow Govt guidance
✅ Got symptoms? Get tested
Localised testing is currently available in Wombwell - if you have any concerns that you may have COVID-19, please do get a test to protect yourself, your family and our community.
Following the increase in cases, I have written to
Matt Hancock
to push for increased local testing and further support for
Barnsley Council
and local public health teams to carry out vital contact tracing in our community to break the chains of transmission of the virus.
