New coronavirus testing site

by samalhamdani on 28 June, 2020

A new pilot coronavirus testing site has been installed at the Southgate Street car park (next to Oldham Library – Oldham town centre) on Friday, 26 June.

The facility is for people who are concerned that they may have coronavirus, who do not necessarily have access to a vehicle and we are particularly keen for our communities in the nearby Alexandra, St Mary’s and Coldhurst wards to become aware of, and use, this facility. 

From this weekend, anyone who suspects they have coronavirus can go to the national NHS website or call NHS 119 to book an appointment at the site which operates seven days a week. They will need to show a confirmation email (printed or on a mobile device) as well as ID. A face covering must be worn at all times by those attending the facility
