SEFTON Borough’s next military-run Mobile Test Centre is taking place at Southport Eco Centre from today (Monday, May 25) to Wednesday, May 27.

Tests are available to everyone aged over five years old, although essential workers, as well as other eligible groups and members of their households, may be prioritised, nationally.

The tests provide a clinical diagnosis and are not an antibody test that tells you if you had the coronavirus in the past.

Testing is vital to the ongoing work to overcome the virus and means that key workers who test negative are able to return to their roles and almost 2,000 people have now been tested at Sefton Borough’s Mobile Test sites.

Further Mobile Test Centres are expected to take place in Litherland, Maghull and Southport again over the coming weeks.

The success of these Tests Sites continues to be the result of the close work between Sefton Council officers and colleagues in the health and other sectors.

Anyone attending must have pre-booked an appointment by visiting www.gov.uk/apply-coronavirus-test and have an appointment before going to the site.
