Crewe gets first Covid-19 Local Testing Site
22 September 2020

A dedicated walk-through Covid-19 testing site is to be deployed in Crewe.

The semi-permanent site, known as a Local Testing Site (LTS), is being created in Crewe and will be ready for public use from 1 October. This is one of a number of such sites being set up across Cheshire and Merseyside.

The LTS will offer bespoke walk-through appointments, to improve access for the whole community, especially those who do not have access to a car or should not be using public transport because they have symptoms.

LTSs are designed to supplement existing testing facilities such as regional and mobile testing units. Unlike mobile testing units, which are often deployed for around four days, the LTS will be open for several months to ensure that accessible testing is continually available to people within their communities.

The site is being set-up at Chester Street car park and users will be asked to self-swab when attending. Appointments must be booked in advance, no walk-up appointments will be available.
