The mobile COVID-19 testing unit returns to the London Borough of Barnet this coming week – at three separate locations.
The unit will be open for tests for attendees in a vehicle and on foot between 10.30am-3.30pm on each day at:
- Barnet House on Monday 6 July
- Brent Cross Shopping Centre on Wednesday 9 July, and
- Edgware Community Hospital on Sunday 12 July.
All appointments must be booked in advance, either:
- through the NHS website
- or via the national booking website to receive a priority slot if you are an essential worker
Testing is now available for anyone with symptoms: https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/testing-for-coronavirus/ask-for-a-test-to-check-if-you-have-coronavirus/
Please note that guidelines for testing specify that individuals should be tested within the first three days of showing symptoms. The test is best taken within five days of symptoms starting. It is therefore vital if you have symptoms that you apply to take a test as soon as possible.
Please be aware that people can arrive at test sites on foot. The portal currently only has an option for drive-through, but this is an issue with the booking portal. You can write anything in the vehicle registration box so those who are attending on foot should just write ‘Unknown’ in the box. If you are intending to attend the site on foot, you should not be using public transport to get there.
