The Mobile Testing Unit will be located at St Andrew’s Church / The Star Children’s Centre on Shevington Lane between 10am and 3pm on Wednesday 16 June and Friday 18 June, and at Prescot Soccer Centre on Wednesday 16 June, Thursday 17 June and Friday 18 June.
Residents are asked to remember to wear a mask when attending the Mobile Testing Unit and to ensure they keep a safe distance from those not in their household.
In addition, residents should return home and stay at home until their test result is confirmed.
With restrictions being eased, opportunities for more social interactions and variants of concern in circulation, it’s important that anyone with symptoms or who has had a positive test with a lateral flow / home testing kit, are tested. Importantly, if the PCR test is positive, they can self-isolate and stop passing on the virus to others.
