Mobile testing site for coronavirus returns to Scarborough tomorrow

A mobile coronavirus testing site will be in Scarborough tomorrow (Wednesday) for anyone showing symptoms to get tested.

The drive-through facility will set up at the Seamer Road park and ride site.

It is being organised by the 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.

l

Anyone 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 at www.gov.uk/apply-coronavirus-test-essential-workers from 8pm tonight.
