New Covid testing site is coming to Dinnington

There are plans to build a new walk-through COVID testing site in Dinnington.

The new site, which will be in a central location within the town, is set to open in early to mid November.

As well as being more accessible for Dinningtion residents, it will also be easier to get to than the Forge Island testing site for people living in areas like Laughton, Laughton Common, North and South Anston, Thurcroft, Harthill and Kiveton.

Testing is by appointment only.

Anyone showing Coronavirus symptoms, even mild ones, should book an appointment for a test as soon as possible. You must book a test on the NHS website or by calling 119.

Following a national shortage of testing slots several weeks ago, local testing sites are once again reporting good availability.

If you’re getting a test because you have symptoms, you and anyone you live with must self-isolate until you get your result. This also applies to anyone in your support bubble (where someone who lives alone - or just with their children - can meet people from 1 other household).

You must also self-isolate while you're waiting to get your test.
