About the COVID test
How do we do the test?
On arrival at one of our test centres or at the venue that we are facilitating the test, a COVID technician will meet you wearing PPE to protect you both. You will have your temperature taken, via a contactless scanning device. Next you will be asked questions about any symptoms you may currently have and your contact details. For the test you will be asked to sit down and a swab of first your throat, then both nostrils will be taken. The swab looks like a long cotton bud. The test is not painful, but some people feel that the throat swab makes them gag a little. It is over and done with very quickly. We then send the swabs for testing to our specialist laboratories. As soon as the results are ready you will be able to view them on line or via an email.
