Pop-up coronavirus test centre to be set up in Harrogate tomorrow

A mobile coronavirus testing site will return to Harrogate tomorrow (8 July) for anyone showing symptoms to get tested.

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

Anyone who is showing coronavirus symptoms should register for a test on the NHS website at www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/

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.
