Mobile coronavirus testing site back in Whitby

A mobile coronavirus testing site will be in Whitby on Friday (3rd) for anyone showing symptoms to get tested.

Whitby park and ride.

The drive-through facility will set up at the park and ride site on the A171 Guisborough Road.

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.

Anyone who is showing coronavirus symptoms should register here for a test on the NHS website.

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 here and can be booked from 8pm tomorrow (Thurs).
