A mobile unit has been set up in Glossop to help local people to get a coronavirus test.
Situated on Fauvel Road, it opened last Friday (2 October) and is scheduled to be in place until Friday 16 October.
It is open for pre-booked appointments only, which need to be booked in advance through the national portal at www.nhs.uk/coronavirus
Only people with symptoms should book a test and it is open to people in cars as well as on foot.
Please only book a test if you have one or more of the main symptoms…
If you have any of the main symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19), get a test as soon as possible. Stay at home until you get the result.
The main symptoms of coronavirus are:
a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you’ve noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal
Most people with coronavirus have at least 1 of these symptoms.
