A new walk-through coronavirus testing facility has opened in Stroud.

People with Covid symptoms will be able to book appointments at Stratford Park Leisure Centre as part of the Government’s UK-wide drive to continue to improve the accessibility of coronavirus testing for local communities.

The new site is situated so it is easily accessible without a car. Those being tested will be required to follow public health measures, including social distancing, not travelling by taxi or public transport, practicing good personal hygiene and wearing a face covering throughout, including while travelling to and from the testing centre.

Anyone attending an appointment at a walk-through test site will be provided with guidance on getting to and from the test site safely, with additional support for vulnerable groups and people with disabilities.

Testing at the new site started on Thursday, with appointments made available each day for those with coronavirus symptoms – a high temperature, a new continuous cough, or a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste.

Anyone with one or more of these symptoms should book a test at nhs.uk/coronavirus or by calling 119.
