We are planning to launch a new testing site in East Hampshire so that those who cannot work from home (i.e. frontline workers, health care staff, supermarket staff etc) can get tested - even if they are not showing symptoms.
This is important to help keep workplaces that need to stay open safe as it's been shown that around one in three people have coronavirus without showing symptoms. Therefore, regular testing for people with no symptoms will help to find positive cases earlier and break chains of transmission.
The new tests are called 'rapid lateral flow tests'. Your results will be texted to you later that day.
Testing is free and available for people who work for businesses with fewer than 50 employees.
The tests will take place at Alton Leisure Centre, Chawton Park Rd, Alton GU34 1ST.
Opening times will be: 9am-12.30pm and 1.30-4.15pm, Monday to Saturday (inclusive)
Free parking will be available on site.
If your business has more than 50 employees you can still order coronavirus tests for your employees.
We're all doing everything we possibly can to help stop the spread of coronavirus and this is one of the ways that can help keep our community safe.
If you are displaying at least one of the three coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms - a high temperature, a new, continuous cough or you’ve lost your sense of smell or taste or it’s changed - please get a free NHS coronavirus test.
