North Wales drive-through test centre to open

A drive-through testing centre for people with suspected coronavirus will open in north Wales tomorrow.

The facility will open at Builder Street coach park, in Llandudno, on Wednesday.

NHS staff, police, firefighters and care home workers showing symptoms associated with the virus will be the first to be tested at the site.

They will be able to drive on to the site and self-swab without leaving their vehicles, North Wales Resilience Forum said.

Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board’s Executive Director of Public Health, Teresa Owen, said the new facility would play "an integral part" in the region's response to the pandemic.

North Wales Police's Assistant Chief Constable, Sacha Hatchett, who chairs the North Wales Resilience Forum, added, “The demand for coronavirus testing amongst our critical workers is growing.

"This new centre allows us to provide coronavirus testing in a convenient, timely and, above all else, a safe way for all involved in the process.”
