A council spokesman said the testing units have been in operation for the past few weeks.
Members of the public must book a test online before using the facilities.

Sandwell's director of public health, Lisa McNally, said it was important to keep rotating the test sites around Sandwell.
She told the Express & Star: "We keep moving these around so that we can make sure people have got access all over the borough.
"Having them in the same place is not that helpful."
