“With students and teachers trying to return to school safely after a difficult six months, this government has made the whole process far more difficult by failing to ensure COVID-19 testing is available and accessible for Watford residents.
Cllr Asif Khan, North Watford county councillor and Leggatts councillor said:
“The whole agenda of reopening schools and businesses is dependent on these tests. Our residents are struggling to get tests on the government system, but if they are lucky they are asked to got to Manchester or Cardiff.
As of yesterday, Watford is also now in track and trace pilot area. How can you do pilot testing when there’s a lack of tests?
With winter approaching, the lack of tests is dangerous. What else has this government failed to prepare for?
The failure on testing is the latest in a long line of missteps and crises brought on by this Tory government. Dean Russell has a duty to stand up for our town and get the government to stop this growing list of disasters and sort this mess out.”
