A coronavirus testing unit in Nuneaton has moved to cover another part of the county.

There had been concerns raised on social media that the Army-run site at the Harefield Road car park had closed.

But it is actually a mobile testing site, and has been moved to operate in Warwick.

It is currently due to be back in Nuneaton tomorrow (September 4), according to Warwickshire County Council, which is responsible for public health across the county.

“The Nuneaton testing unit is not closed, but it is a mobile testing unit which rotates around different sites in the county,” the Shire Hall spokesperson said.

“We understand it should be back in Nuneaton for 4th to 8th September 2020 at its previous location. It is currently in Warwick.



“It is important that people who need a test get one.

“Anyone with COVID-19 symptoms should book a test via nhs.uk/coronavirus and will be offered a choice of their nearest locations, or the option of a home test.”

The Army first started using the Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council-owned car park as a testing unit at the start of May.

It has remained closed to the public since.
