The latest information and advice with regard to COVID-19 support and precautionary measures.
Please see the attached information leaflet which provides an overview of the free testing options available in the Shropshire Council area, including ‘train the lead’ training. Businesses can find out more about the asymptomatic LFT training to support on-site testing and/or book training by emailing email@example.com
The ‘train the lead’ training is in two parts. The first involves e-learning which staff complete remotely, including assessment and certification upon completion. Evidence of this is required prior to attending the second part (practical training to confidently and competently onsite test). A minimum of two staff per organisation should attend. Attendees are also required to book a LFT test at one of the community testing sites within 48 hours of attending the practical training at Theatre Severn, Shrewsbury.
