A drive-through coronavirus testing centre will return to Harrogate on Wednesday.

  • It's at the Harrogate Hydro Car Park 
  • Anyone over the age of five with coronavirus symptoms can go 
  • However, you must make an appointment first 
  • The test centre will be open between 11am and 3pm, Wednesday 

It will be set up at Harrogate Hydro car park on Jenny Field Drive and is for anyone aged over five with symptoms.

The centre will run between 11am and 3pm on both days, and people have been warned to not just turn up, but make an appointment first.

There are two ways to do this depending on which testing group you are part of.

Anyone aged five and over who is showing coronavirus symptoms should register for a test on the NHS website.

People who don’t have access to the internet, or who have difficulty with the digital portals, can ring the new 119 service to book.

Key workers and members of their household should register for a test on the government website.

Tests can be booked from 8pm the night before.
