Coronavirus test centre returning to Harrogate today - this is how to book an appointment

A mobile coronavirus testing centre will return to Harrogate today (Wednesday, June 3).

Wednesday, 3rd June 2020, 10:10 am

The drive-through centre is being set up at Harrogate Hydro car park on Jenny Field Drive and is for anyone aged over five with symptoms.

It will run between 11am and 3pm, and people have been warned to not just turn up, but make an appointment first.

There are two ways to do this depending on which testing group you are part of.

Anyone aged five and over who is showing coronavirus symptoms should register for a test on the NHS website.

People who don't have access to the internet, or who have difficulty with the digital portals, can ring the new 119 service to book.

Key workers and members of their household should register for a test on the government website.

Tests can be booked from 8pm the night before.

Testing was previously held at the car park on the 5th, 16th, 17th and 27 of May.
