Stop the opening of the COVID-19 testing centre in Cambridge Arcade,Southport

This petition made change with 346 supporters!

Today it was announced that a COVID-19 Testing centre would open without consultation in the middle of Cambridge Arcade in Southport.The Arcade is a thriving glass roofed Victorian arcade at the epi-centre of Southport Town centre.

We believe the testing centre should be stopped from opening due to the following:

  • lack of consultation with surrounding business.
  • Health and safety-It makes no good sense to invite members of the public with Covid-19 like symptoms to the centre of a busy town.
  • Economic effect on surrounding business due to the perception of risk from the centre.
  • Lack of risk assessment taking into consideration reduced footpath from food and drink establishments within the arcade ( These are vital for their economic success during these times).


Although we understand the important work the testing sites do, a more suitable site should be found.


Please sign and lets get this stopped.
