In addition, local walk-through test centres are open every day from 8am to 8pm, providing easy access to COVID-19 tests for people who do not have access to a car and for those who have symptoms and should not travel by public transport.

Walk-through sites will open 9am-3pm on 25th and 28th December and on 1st January 2021. 

The four local test centres are located at:

  • Bootle Town Hall L20 7AA

Those with symptoms seeking tests, need to book ahead of going to either the walk-through or drive-through sites. It’s quick and easy to book by calling 119 or going online at www.nhs.uk/coronavirus.
