More Covid-19 testing in Haslemere, tomorrow and Monday

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.

More Haslemere Covid19 testing dates

Members of the Waverley Local Committee have been sent the message below about more dates for Covid19 testing in Haslemere:

Dear Waverley Local Committee,
 
In case you were not already aware, on Friday 12 June and Saturday 13 June there will be a Mobile Testing Unit (MTU) at:
 
Haslemere Leisure Centre,
Kings Road
Haslemere
GU27 2QT
 
It is open to anyone with symptoms of COVID-19.
 
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.
 
You do not need a car to attend this testing centre, you can ‘walk-in’ but an appointment is still required and the MTU will turn away those who do not have a valid QR code/appointment.
 
In order to book an appointment, individuals should submit their details via one of the links below, and then choose the MTU site as their preferred test location:
