COVID-19 drive through test centre returns to Harrogate

  • Anyone showing symptoms can have a COVID-19 test in Harrogate this week.
  • A drive-through testing centre has returned to the Hydro car park.
  • Appointments do need to be made prior to arrival.

A mobile coronavirus testing site will return to Harrogate this week for anyone showing symptoms to get tested.

The drive-through facility will set up at the Hydro Leisure Centre on Jenny Field Drive on Wednesday, July 15 and Sunday, July 19.

It is being organised by the Department of Health and Social Care who have warned people to not just turn up but make an appointment first.


How to make an appointment

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

Anyone 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 on the government website from 8pm the night before.
