Current Covid-19 testing locations in the High Peak

People working and living in the High Peak are continuing to be urged to get tested regularly for Covid-19 to help stop the spread of the virus.

Once again, the mobile Covid-19 testing unit is in Glossopdale this week offering PCR tests, which are sent to a laboratory for analysis.

People should book a test online at https://www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test before attending the site. 

On Monday (26 July), Tuesday (27 July) and Wednesday (28 July), it's based at the car park at the Geoffrey Allen Centre on Winster Mews in Gamesley from 9am to 5pm.

On Thursday (29 July) and Friday (30 July), it's at the Redgra area on Fauvel Road in Glossop from 9am to 5pm. 

Then on Saturday (31 July) and Sunday (1 August), it's at Glossopdale School on Newshaw Lane in Hadfield from 9am to 3pm. 

Everyone is welcome, with residents being encouraged to continue to get tested twice a week whether they have symptoms or not. 

Done by taking a swab of the throat and nose, the PCR test is the most reliable test for Covid-19. Children under 11 should be helped by an adult.

Results are usually returned within one to two days and help to keep track of cases, including new variants of Covid-19.

Testing site in Buxton 

A coronavirus testing site is also still in Buxton, opposite the swimming pool at the Pavilion Gardens, on St John's Road. 

It's open on Thursday (29 July) and Friday (30 July) from 9am to 5pm.
