Wellington has been thanked for hosting the COVID testing site for the past 18 months on the Wrekin Road car park.

As you may be aware free COVID testing comes to an end on the 31st March and all testing sites will close. We have been informed by UKSHA  (UK Health Security Agency) that the last day of testing will be 30th March. The site will remain the responsibility of UKSHA until the infrastructure can be demobilised by them and their security will remain on site until this time.

We have been informed that the process to demobilise the entire network of test sites across England could take approximately 4 – 6 months.  The planned start date for the demobilisation of the Wrekin Rd Car Park test site and removal of all infrastructure is week commencing 11 July 2022.

The site will then be handed back to the council when any repairs or refurbishment will be carried out before returning to its normal function.
