A mobile Covid-19 testing centre for north Herefordshire is now operating on the Broad Street Car Park in Leominster. The unit opened will offer tests from 10.30am until 3.30pm each day and will be in place for the foreseeable future. It is being provided by the regional NHS test and trace team.
Anyone experiencing symptoms of Covid-19 – a high temperature, persistent cough, loss or change in sense of taste or smell – should immediately book a test by ringing NHS 119 or visiting www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test. They should self-isolate (not leave their home) while waiting for their test and until they have the result. Anyone who cannot get to a test centre can order a home test kit.
