Coronavirus testing: McDonald Rd, 14 to 20 June

Edinburgh Council says

Regular testing for people with no COVID-19 symptoms is one of the ways we can all help keep people safe and stop the spread of COVID-19 in Edinburgh. Infection rates are rising across Edinburgh, particularly in some communities.

We’re asking people who have no COVID-19 symptoms to come along to McDonald Road Library from Monday 14 June to Sunday 20 June for a test. We’re open from 9am to 6pm and there’s no need to book. Testing is free, fast and safe. It will only take around 15 minutes to take the test and 45 minutes for people to be sent their results.

If you can’t get to the library, you can order free rapid lateral flow test kits online or by phoning the National Testing Centre on 119.

Almost 1 in 3 people infected with Covid-19 don’t have any of the usual symptoms but are potentially passing on the virus unknowingly to family, friends and others in the community. By getting tested people can find out if they are positive and self-isolate at home to stop spreading the virus to others. People who have been vaccinated are also encouraged to take a test as they may still carry the virus.

You can find out more about community testing on our web pages at www.edinburgh.gov.uk/communitytesting

Please can you share this with your contacts in the community and encourage people to come along.

Thank you for your help.
