Mobile Coronavirus Testing Site To Come To Whitby

Mobile Coronavirus Testing Site To Come To Whitby

Published by Local Democracy Reporter Carl Gavaghan at 1:51pm 21st May 2020.

A mobile coronavirus testing site will be in Whitby tomorrow (Friday) and now anyone over the age of five with symptoms can get tested.

The drive-through facility will set up at Whitby’s park and ride site on the A171.

It is being organised by the Ministry of Defence and Department of Health and Social Care who have warned people to not just turn up but make an appointment first.

There are two ways to do this depending on which testing group you are part of.

Anyone aged five and over who is showing coronavirus symptoms should register for a test on the NHS website at www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/

People who don’t have access to the internet, or who have difficulty with the digital portals, can ring the new 119 service to book.

Key workers and members of their household should register for a test on the government website.

Tests can be booked from 8pm tonight (Thursday) before at www.gov.uk/apply-coronavirus-test-essential-workers.
