Mobile testing units are out and about again this week to help as many people as possible get into the habit of twice weekly COVID-19 testing.
With around one in three people with the virus not showing symptoms, regular, symptom-free testing remains an essential tool to help control the spread, especially as restrictions ease.
Remember, even if you have had your vaccine, it’s important to continue to get tested and follow all the guidance in place to control the virus and save lives.
The testing team will be on hand to help you take a test and talk you through the process. You can also collect a box of kits to take home, each box has 7 tests in it.
