A COVID-19 testing centre has opened up in Maidstone PRE-BOOKED APPOINTMENTS ONLY – NO WALK INS.
It is located at the Shepway Youth and Community Centre car park in Cumberland Avenue, Shepway.
It is only open to those showing symptoms, such as a high temperature, a new continuous cough, or a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste.
Anyone with one or more of these symptoms should book a test at nhs.uk/coronavirus or by calling 119.
MP Helen Whately said: “Our focus now must be on bringing down the rates of infection in our community so we can lift more restrictions and get more parts of our lives back to some form of normality.
“Regular testing should help with this, so I’m pleased that NHS Test and Trace will be opening a Local Test Site at Shepway Youth Centre car park – making it easier for more people in Maidstone to get a test.”
Patients with possible symptoms should book or order a test at nhs.uk/coronavirus. Those unable to access the internet can call 119 in England, to book a test.
