A new local Covid-19 test site is opening at the Harper Adams University (Harris Hall Overflow Car Park).
This new site will make it easier for many people in Edgmond and the surrounding areas to access testing. This site forms part of a pilot to open new ‘walk through’ Local Test Sites in England which are easily accessible by foot or on a bike.
The NHS Test and Trace service has processed more than 21 million coronavirus tests since the pandemic began.
Across the UK testing capacity has been expanded to more than 300,000 tests a day, meaning that anyone with symptoms can book a test for free.
Anyone with symptoms of coronavirus – a high temperature, a new, continuous cough, or a loss or change to sense of smell or taste – should book a test immediately at nhs.uk/coronavirus.
In England, anyone testing positive will be contacted by NHS Test and Trace, to help them trace their recent contacts and further control the spread of the virus.
