SNOW UPDATE - 24 JAN 2021 - 11am
We have had a lot of snow fall across the borough this morning (24 JAN) and expect it to continue to snow into this afternoon. We are advising resident to travel only if absolutely essential.
Crews have gritted last night and this morning and have teams on the ground monitoring conditions and will continue to grit as required throughout the day.
❌ RAPID TESTING CENTRE CLOSED ❌
We have had to close the rapid testing centre at The Place in Oakengates today due to the snow ❄️
We are contacting those customers affected by today's closure.
If you were booked today, please rebook here: http://orlo.uk/7nuoK
Our rapid test centre if for those with who have no coronavirus symptoms. We are particularly encouraging people who can’t work from home and need to go to work to book a rapid test regularly.
✅ All of the NHS Test and Trace sites across the borough remain open for anyone with symptoms of coronavirus and access to these is good.
Our teams are out and checking road conditions in Ironbridge.
⛔ We will keep all road closures in place for now due to the amount of ice underneath the snow in the areas where there was flood water.
