lifting of national lockdown restrictions postponed businesses urged to be patient

Written by on 15 June 2021

Health bosses at Staffordshire County Council have issued a plea for patience as plans to lift national lockdown restrictions will remain in place until at least July the 19th.

It comes as Covid cases nationally as well county-wide continue to rise. Surge testing is underway in Leek and Cheddleton following an outbreak of the Delta variant, while a pop-up vaccine centre for over 18s is also taking place in Leek until tomorrow.

Dr. Johnny McMahon, the cabinet support member for public health says I know its a devastating blow for many of our businesses in Staffordshire, I feel showing some patience at this critical time is the prudent course of action.
