A NEW walk-through testing site for coronavirus is being set up in a Hampshire town.

The Department of Health and Social Care is opening the centre in the car park at Cams Alders, Fareham. It will open tomorrow and operate on an appointment-only basis.

Anyone with coronavirus symptoms, however mild, can get a free swab test that takes less than a minute.

Tests should be booked or ordered as soon as symptoms begin at nhs.uk/coronavirus or by calling 119. People can expect their result the next day.

The site will operate using detailed procedures that have been approved by Public Health England.

Further details about how walk-through sites operate are available on the Government’s website: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-getting-tested.
