Derbyshire is starting a community testing programme to help get COVID-19 in Derbyshire under control.
The testing will help people to protect their loved ones and will enable Derbyshire's public health team to understand the prevalence of people who are infected but without symptoms, support those who have COVID-19 to self-isolate and to drive infection rates down further in the county.
Initially, we need people to carry out roles in South Derbyshire, Bolsover, Amber Valley, Derbyshire Dales and Chesterfield. However, the location of testing across Derbyshire may change over time. Roles currently include team leader, testing operative and site operative.
