More, mobile Coronavirus testing scheduled for Southport this week
The Borough’s next Mobile Test Centre is scheduled to take place at Southport Eco Centre from Monday 25th to Wednesday 27th May.
Test are available to everyone aged over 5 although essential workers, as well as other eligible groups and members of their households, may be prioritised, nationally. The tests provide a clinical diagnosis and are not an antibody test that tells you if you had Covid-19 in the past.
Testing is vital to the ongoing work to overcome COVID-19 and means that key workers who test negative are able to return to their roles and almost 2,000 people have now been tested at Sefton Borough’s Mobile Test sites.
Anyone attending must have pre-booked an appointment by visiting www.nhs.uk/ask-for-a-coronavirus-test and have an appointment before going to the site.
Further Mobile Test Centres are expected to take place in Litherland, Maghull and Southport again over the coming weeks.
The success of these Tests Sites continues to be the result of the close work between Sefton Council officers and colleagues in the health and other sectors.
