Press Release from Buckinghamshire Council

01 June 2020

The first will be up and running in High Wycombe for up to three days from Tuesday, 2 June.

And another will be operating from Amersham for up to two days from Friday, 5 June.

These are the third mobile sites to come to both High Wycombe and Amersham in recent weeks and follow others in Buckingham and Aylesbury last month.

They are in addition to other local and regional coronavirus testing sites, which are still available for residents in Buckinghamshire to use.

Anyone aged 5 years and over who has coronavirus symptoms (a high temperature; a new, continuous cough; a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste) is now eligible to be tested.

However, tests for essential workers, such as frontline healthcare staff, are being prioritised over tests for the wider public at this time. Children under 5 who have symptoms and live in the same household as an essential worker are also now eligible for testing.

To arrange a test, go to www.gov.uk/coronavirus and click on the appropriate link for you within the ‘testing’ section of information. The booking process is slightly different for members of the public to that for essential workers.

Tests must be booked and are not available on a ‘drop-in’ basis. You can also book a test at a different site via the website. Further details of the testing sites will be provided to people when they book their test.

If the mobile testing sites are fully booked then you will be offered testing at the next-closest location.
