A Mobile Testing Unit (MTU) will be operating in Kettering, Northamptonshire, in support of the COVID-19 National Testing Programme from Saturday 4 July to Tuesday July 2020.

Testing is by appointment only. Appointments can be made at www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-getting-tested

Mobile units are only in a location for a few days. They have an integrated one-way system that allows people with an appointment to attend for either walk-in or drive-through testing.

The eligibility criteria for tests have been extended to include anyone with coronavirus symptoms (new, continuous cough; high temperature; loss of or change in sense of smell or taste).

Essential workers will be given a priority.
