A mobile coronavirus testing unit is set to open at Aldersley Leisure Village in Wolverhampton today.
The testing unit will allow those with symptoms to book an appointment with the NHS and attend the site for walk-in or drive through testing.
Councillor Jasbir Jaspal, the City of Wolverhampton Council’s Cabinet Member for Public Health and Wellbeing, said;
“Testing is one of the most important interventions that will enable the effective management of coronavirus, and so we are pleased to be able to make Aldersley Leisure Village available to host this mobile test centre.”
Councillor Jaspal added that Coronavirus cases remain low in the city.
Cllr Jaspal said;
“ We all need to continue doing our bit to stem the spread of the virus, and that means following the guidance, practicing social distancing and acting sensibly.”
The unit will be based at the council run leisure centre for the next few weeks.
