Covid testing unit in Wednesfield this week

A mobile unit offering free rapid testing for coronavirus will be located in Wednesfield this week.

Anyone without symptoms of Covid-19 is invited to get tested at the mobile unit at Wednesfield Community Hub, off Well Lane, which will be open between 8am and 7pm each day.

It will be in Wednesfield until Sunday, March 21, before moving to a new location next Monday.

Councillor Jasbir Jaspal, Wolverhampton Council’s cabinet member for public health and wellbeing, said: “We have worked hard to make testing as accessible as possible, with rapid test centres at six sites across Wolverhampton.

"The deployment of our mobile unit to Wednesfield Community Hub this week will mean more people are able to get tested closer to home.

"Please remember that, even if you have had your Covid-19 vaccination, it's important to get tested regularly – and that you must continue to follow Government guidance.

"Keep your distance from others, wear a face covering and wash your hands or use hand sanitiser so that we can defeat this virus."
