Sefton Council’s next military-run Mobile Test Centre is scheduled to take place at Southport Eco Centre from Bank Holiday Monday (May 25) through to Wednesday (May 27).
Test 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.
The tests provide a clinical diagnosis and are not an antibody test that tells you if you had Covid-19 in the past.
Testing is vital to the ongoing work to overcome Covid-19 and means that key workers who test negative are able to return to their roles. Almost 2,000 people have now been tested at Sefton Borough’s Mobile Test sites.
Anyone attending must have pre-booked an appointment by visiting www.gov.uk/apply-
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.
