Free walk-in Lateral Flow Tests (LFTs) are available from Cheshire West and Chester Council’s own mobile pop-up COVID-19 testing units which will be in Winsford next week. As of 18 October, the pop-up testing units, which also offer free kits for people to use at home, will be located at:
Public car park, Greville Drive, opposite Catalan Close, Winsford CW7 3EP open every day from 9.30am to 2.45pm between Monday, 18 October and Friday, 22 October
The current approach to testing in the borough is not part of a surge testing programme but is in response to testing where COVID-19 rates are relatively high. The pop-up testing units will provide a free LFT test to anyone who does not have any COVID-19 symptoms. This type of test is good at picking up people who have no symptoms but are infected with COVID-19 and so may be unknowingly spreading the disease.
