A testing centre, set up in Hereford to test key workers to check for Coronavirus has had to close today due to running out of tests.

Statement from Herefordshire Council:

“We are sorry to inform you that due to high demand for testing at Merton Meadow in Hereford, there are no longer any tests available for today. Please do not travel to the site, even if you have a test booked, as you will not be seen and there is already significant traffic around the area. All those who need a test should log on to the government website to book an alternative slot. We know the testing team are working as fast as they can, while they observe social distancing and hygiene measures. Thank you for your patience”
