New Covid-19 testing site opens in Newark

Posted onPosted on 17th Nov

A new walk-through coronavirus testing facility has opened at Castle House car park, Newark.

Testing is only available for those with coronavirus symptoms – a high temperature, a new continuous cough, or a loss or change to senses of smell or taste. Anyone with one or more of these symptoms should book a test at or by calling 119.

The new site has been situated so it is easily accessible without a car. Those being tested will be required to follow public health measures, including social distancing, not travelling by taxi or public transport, practising good personal hygiene and wearing a face covering throughout, including while travelling to and from the testing centre.

Anyone attending an appointment at a walk-through test site will be provided with guidance on getting to and from the test site safely, with additional support for vulnerable groups and people with disabilities.

Testing at the new site started today, Tuesday, 17 November, and appointments are being made available each day.

The testing centre is being operated in partnership with Serco and will offer self-administered tests.
