Symptom-free Covid test centres in Liverpool targeted at the frontline

Liverpool’s testing centres for people without coronavirus symptoms are to be targeted at frontline workers during the lockdown.

The sites will be available to be used by those such as NHS and care workers, school staff, supermarket employees and delivery drivers – who cannot work from home and have to have physical contact with others because of the nature of their roles. Unpaid carers are also included.

“However, in the light of the new lockdown which means most people should be working from home and strictly limiting their trips outside, we are now asking that the centres are used by people who are on the frontline in essential roles.

“This will give them some reassurance that they are clear of the virus, and an early indication if they have contracted it before they develop symptoms. Those who do test positive should have it confirmed with a follow-up PCR test.”

Anyone who had coronavirus symptoms – a high temperature, new continuous cough or loss of taste and smell – should not go to one of the centres but should self-isolate immediately and book a test at a PCR site by calling 119 or visiting https://www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test.
