Covid-19 Test Facility for Cullompton
Mid Devon District Council has been working closely with the national testing programme to reopen a test facility for Covid-19 in Cullompton.
The temporary testing site is specifically for people showing symptoms of Covid-19. Anyone in England and Wales who has symptoms of the virus, whatever their age, should apply for a test.
From Friday 4 December 2020 a mobile unit will be situated in the lower section of Station Road car park, Cullompton.
The facility is being delivered by Serco on behalf of the Department of Health and Social Care. The site will be open seven days a week, with opening times to be confirmed.
You should be tested as soon as possible from when you first display symptoms of the virus and should book the test online.
You can read more about the testing process and can book a test using the Government’s online portal. You will need to show ID at the testing centre and should arrive at the testing site with a scheduled appointment. On some occasions testing may be available for those showing symptoms who have not secured an appointment. If you are unable to access the internet you can book a test by calling 119.
This is a drive through facility so you should arrive in a vehicle in order to be tested. Please do not leave your vehicle and take instructions upon arrival at the site.
The whole site will be deep cleaned when the testing site has been closed, so that it can safely be returned to its normal use once government guidance allows.
Remember, you can spread the virus even if you don’t have symptoms.
