Mobile coronavirus testing centre open in Buckingham today, Monday
Coronavirus mobile testing sites will be operating throughout Buckinghamshire in the week leading up to the Easter Bank Holiday weekend.
Mobile coronavirus testing centres in Buckinghamshire over the coming week include one in Buckingham on Monday, March 29, for up to two days.
Other sites include Marlow, on Wednesday, March 31, for up to two days;
High Wycombe, on Friday, April 2 for up to four days;
Princes Risborough, on Saturday, April 3.
Gerrards Cross, on Saturday, April 3, for up to two days.
Walk-through testing sites are also open seven days a week at the Gateway Centre car park in Aylesbury and the Buckinghamshire New University campus in High Wycombe, and these will be in place for the foreseeable future. A drive-in testing site is also now up and running at Aylesbury Vale Parkway Station.
These sites are open for use by anyone with coronavirus symptoms, and all tests must be booked first – they are not available on a ‘drop-in’ basis.
Anyone with even mild symptoms is being encouraged to arrange a test to help stop the spread of the virus. Symptoms include a high temperature; a new, continuous cough; or a loss or change to 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. It is also possible to order a home testing kit via the website.
If the mobile testing sites are fully booked, you will be offered testing at the next-closest location.
A testing centre operating in Slough is also currently open to Buckinghamshire residents, for booked-in visits only.
