A seventh coronavirus test site has opened in Wolverhampton. The creation of the walk-through site, in the car park of Whitmore Reans Library on Bargate Drive, further increases testing capacity in the city. Anyone who has symptoms of Covid-19 – including a fever, a new continuous cough or a change to their sense of taste or smell – is reminded that they must book a test by visiting www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test or by calling 119.
The Whitmore Reans test centre joins six other test sites in the city for people with symptoms of Covid-19 in the city – a drive-through centre at Aldersley Leisure Village and walk-through centres at Faulkland Street, Showell Road and Blakenhall Community Resource Centre in Wolverhampton, the Sikh Community Centre on Rookery Street in Wednesfield, and at Mountford Lane in Bilston.
All sites are accessible via appointment only, except for the Faulkland Street centre which also has up to 50 tests per day available on a first come, first served basis for those without an appointment.
