Over the past two weeks there has been an increased number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 at the University of Kent’s Canterbury campus.
Numbers of confirmed cases remain low and the public should be reassured that, as with any suspected outbreak, KCC is working quickly and closely with PHE, the University and other partners to make sure enhanced testing is available to anyone affected, along with sequencing to identify any COVID-19 variants.
A mobile testing unit has now been deployed to the University so that this testing can take place.
As a result of this enhanced testing, a decision has been made to move the Kent County Council meeting on Thursday to a different location.
The meeting will be held at the Mote Park leisure centre in Maidstone.
Unfortunately it will not be possible to webcast the meeting but we aim to make a recording of proceedings available on our website within 24 hours.
