Wolverhampton's 5 coronavirus test centres remain open during the national lockdown which is now underway – and people who have symptoms of Covid-19 are being reminded that they must get a test.
Symptoms include a fever, a new, continuous cough or a loss or change to a person’s sense of taste and smell. People can book a test online by visiting GOV.UK or by calling 119. In addition, a total of 50 tests per day are available without prior appointment at the city’s Faulkland Street walk through test centre, on a first come, first served basis.
The city's 4 other test centres – a drive through centre at Aldersley Leisure Village and walk through centres at Showell Road and Blakenhall Community Resource Centre in Wolverhampton and Mountford Lane in Bilston – remain appointment only.
Details of all of Wolverhampton’s test centres can be found at Coronavirus Testing. People are reminded that they should wear a face covering when attending walk through centres, only removing these while the test is taking place.
The latest information and guidance around coronavirus is available at GOV.UK and on the council’s own coronavirus pages at Coronavirus advice and information.
