Temporary 'Walk Up' Coronavirus Testing Unit opens in Pontypool

Wednesday 30th September 2020

A temporary mobile testing unit at the Old Mill Car Park, Trosnant, Pontypool, NP4 8AT, has opened on Wednesday 30th September.

This new mobile unit has been opened in response to a rising rate of Coronavirus cases, and will provide a ‘walk up’ testing service to residents of Torfaen, by appointment only.

If you have symptoms of Coronavirus - a new continuous cough, high temperature or loss of taste and/or smell – or if you’ve been feeling unwell for no apparent reason, please call 0300 30 31 222 between 8am - 6pm to book a test.

The mobile testing unit will be based at the Old Mill Car Park opposite the Pontypool Active Living Centre.

It will be open 9.30am on Wednesday 30th September until 5.30pm on Wednesday 7th October.

If you live too far away to travel by foot to Pontypool, you can book to have a test posted to your home or attend a drive through in Cwm in Ebbw Vale or at Rodney Parade in Newport.

You should not attend this ‘walk up’ facility if you intend on driving to your test.

There are other testing facilities available in Gwent and South Wales. You can also have a test posted to your home. Apply online or phone 119.
