New COVID testing centre opens in West Lindsey

A new testing Centre has been welcomed in Gainsborough following a rise in Coronavirus infections nationally.

The new centre has been erected in the Riverside Car Park in the town centre and is expected to remain there for a minimum of three months.

Gainsborough ward member and also a town councillor, Cllr Matt Boles has welcomed the addition of the testing site to the district.

He said: “We can see that cases nationally continue to rise and by having a site in Gainsborough, we hope we will be able to ensure more people locally will be able to access a test much more easily.

“The Council has been working hard since the outbreak to put measures in place to support businesses with grants and advice, new signs for the town centre and much more. We have recently been handing out leaflets to take away establishments to remind customers of the symptoms of coronavirus, one if which is a change to your smell and taste.

“Our latest campaign Hands, Face Space, Let’s keep Gainsborough safe is aimed at urging local people to get a test if they have symptoms and for us all to do what we can to keep our community safe. We all have a personal responsibility to keep people safe. ”

Whilst the testing centre is a walk in centre, people still have to book a test online. If struggling to access a test online people can call 119.
