Hounslow Council and Brentford Football Club are tackling COVID-19 at the weekend with a mass PCR testing event for the borough’s residents on Saturday 19 June from 11.00am-6.00pm.
Published: Thursday, 17th June 2021
Recently promoted to the Premier League, Brentford FC is supporting the Council's drive to get as many people tested as possible at the Brentford Community Stadium and at the same time it’s an opportunity to visit the new stadium.
For the past few weeks, residents have been ‘Stepping Up’ for Hounslow by getting PCR tested and vaccinated to help tackle the Delta variant.
Hounslow Council’s Leader, Cllr Steve Curran, said: “Don’t miss the opportunity to get your PCR test at Brentford FC on Saturday. The only way we can all hope to get back to a more normal way of life is if we keep getting tested and remember ‘hands, face, space’. If you’re celebrating Father’s Day this weekend, then why not come along with Dad on Saturday together and get him tested, too!”
Cliff Crown, Brentford FC Chairman, said: “We are delighted to be able to assist and provide a venue for this mass testing event on Saturday. We want to do all we can to stop the spread of Covid-19, the sooner we return to normal, the sooner we can fill our new stadium for the Premier League. We always wanted our stadium to be an asset for the whole community and this is just one way it can be used in the coming years.”
