Following a review of Burnley Council's community lateral flow (rapid) Covid testing sites, the following changes have been made from today (Monday).

Testing will no longer be provided from the Gannow Community Centre or Barden Boys' and Girls' Club but these sites will still supply home testing kits for anyone to access.

Testing is still available from Central Methodist Church (behind Burnley Town Hall) as follows:

Wednesdays 9am - 4pm

Saturdays - 9am - noon

A Burnley Council spokesman said: "The review follows a reduction in the number of visits to the testing centres, reflecting the wider rollout of home testing and accessibility of DIY testing kits. Everyone still needs to continue to be tested and to follow the current guidelines to protect themselves and others."
