New Community Testing site opens in Ilkeston today and a reminder of details about the Long Eaton centre

Erewash - Ilkeston

From today (Monday 29 March) Ilkeston residents are being asked to come for a coronavirus test as part of the county council's targeted community testing programme.

Our testing centre is at the EMH Group Car Park, Longfield House, Hallam Fields Road, Ilkeston, DE7 4BR.

This site is open Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm from Monday 29 March until Friday 23 April.

There is also a testing centre for Erewash borough residents in Long Eaton at West Park Leisure Centre, Wilsthorpe Road, Long Eaton, NG10 4AA. This is open 7 days per week from 7.45am to 7pm (There will be no community testing available on 30 March 2021 as regular blood donor sessions will be going ahead at the centre)

One in three people who have the virus don't have any symptoms, so everyone is invited to come along and get a test to protect their family.

The testing is NOT for people with actual coronavirus symptoms - they should book a test – see here: Get a free NHS test to check if you have coronavirus - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)

You can find out more about the testing by visiting www.derbyshire.gov.uk/communitytesting
