The sites are open for use by anyone with coronavirus symptoms, and all tests must be booked first – they are not available on a ‘drop-in’ basis.
Anyone with even mild symptoms is being encouraged to arrange a test to help stop the spread of the virus. Symptoms include:
- A high temperature.
- A new, continuous cough.
- Loss or change to sense of smell or taste.
Anyone with one or more of the above symptoms should book a test at nhs.uk/coronavirus or by calling 119. It is also possible to order a home testing kit via the website.
If the mobile testing sites are fully booked, you will be offered testing at the next-closest location.
A testing centre operating in Slough is also currently open to Buckinghamshire residents, for booked-in visits only.
