ROSEANNA WELCOMES DETAILS OF WALKTHROUGH COVID-19 TEST SITE FOR PERTH

Ms Roseanna Cunningham MSP has welcomed confirmation that a new walkthrough Covid-19 Test Centre will be opening in Thimblerow Car Park in Perth from Sunday, 15 November. 

Roseanna said:

“I am really pleased to learn that not only has a site been decided upon for a full-time walkthrough testing centre in Perth, but it will be up and running within the next few days, two weeks earlier than the first indications I was given.  Well done to everybody who has been responsible for bringing it about.

“The new site is one of 11 new testing sites across the country and is in addition to the drive-through mobile test centre which has been already advertised as coming to McDiarmid Park.

“With the new system of restriction levels being determined on a local authority health board basis it became more important than ever that people in Perth & Kinross had a full-time test centre that we could access within our own council area, rather than having to go to Dundee.

“I understand that construction work for the centre has now started and that the site will be operational from the afternoon of Sunday 15 November.

“It has always been important to book a test if you are experiencing the symptoms of Covid and this very welcome development will make that process significantly easier for many of my constituents.”
