A Covid19 mobile testing unit will be located at the Recreation Facilities Car Park, Brecon Road, Hay- on-Wye from Monday 15 February as testing centres continue to rotate around Powys.
Mobile testing is by appointment only for anyone with symptoms and provides a drive-through service, with those being tested remaining in their car for the duration of their visit.
Anyone arriving for a test who is not in a motor vehicle or does not have an appointment will be turned away.
The continued rotation of the units is part of a rolling programme of mobile testing to ensure residents have access to COVID-19 testing as close to home as possible.
Residents who are have symptoms but are unable to attend a mobile testing unit can request a Home Testing Kit, delivered to your home.
Appointments in Hay-on-Wye or elsewhere, can be booked through the UK Government national booking portal, either online at www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test, by phone on 119, or 18001 119 for people with hearing or speech difficulties. This is also the way to request a home testing kit.
With a new variant that can pass more easily between people, the testing teams are urging people to continue to report to their nearest testing unit if they become unwell with any of the signs and symptoms, which are a new continuous cough, high temperature (fever), loss of, or change to, sense of smell or taste.
Residents can also access further national testing centres in Newtown and Brecon where you can walk, drive or cycle for a test.
