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.
A spokesperson for Derbyshire County Council said: “Anyone who is showing symptoms of coronavirus should self-isolate immediately and book a test online or over the phone on 119 to be directed to their nearest test site or sent a home testing kit.
“The Fauvel Road site has been set up to respond to an increase in cases of coronavirus in the High Peak and is in addition to the two mobile testing units already operating in the Derbyshire.
“Mobile testing units continue to be set up in a rolling programme at locations across the county as part of the Government’s national coronavirus testing programme and last week one was at Buxton from Oct 1-3.
“By putting in an extra testing site, we’re increasing the capacity of the system to help people get tests when they need them.”
In Derby and Derbyshire, there were 704 confirmed cases of Covid-19 in the week September 25 to October 1.
In the county, Glossopdale continues to be a hotspot, making the High Peak the source of the highest number of cases out of all the districts and boroughs, with a rate of infection twice the national average and out of kilter with the rest of Derbyshire. Read more here.
