Subject: Mobile Covid-19 testing
Dear Councillors and Clerks ….. a mobile coronavirus testing facility will be established in Haslemere Leisure Centre Car Park, on Sunday 5 July and Monday 6 July.
Testing is available to all those with COVID-19 symptoms, but must be pre-booked online by 5pm the day before via one of the following websites:
· Residents should book on the national testing portal: www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-getting-tested
· Key workers should book on the government portal: https://www.gov.uk/apply-coronavirus-test-essential-workers
People must have an appointment or will be turned away.
Children under the age of 5 can be tested but there will need to be 2 parents or guardians in the vehicle – one driver plus one adult in the back to administer the test, as people are not allowed to leave their vehicle once on site. If only one parent is present, they should park away from the test centre and enter on foot, where they will be taken to a different area for testing.
Those without transport can walk into the testing centre, but the same rules apply on having a pre-booked appointment.
