A temporary coronavirus testing unit has been set-up in Weston.

The mobile unit at Locking Road car park is available for pre-booked coronavirus tests from 10am until 4pm.

Appointments can be made through www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-getting-tested or by calling 119.

Mobile testing units have an integrated one-way system which allows those with an appointment to attend for either walk-in or drive through testing.

To be eligible for a test you must be aged five-years-old and over, an essential worker with symptoms, or the member of a household of essential workers who are symptomatic.

More guidance can be found at www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-getting-tested#who-can-be-tested

Essential workers will be given priority.

For tests to be effective, you must be symptomatic.
