Testing centre opens in Frome
A new mobile COVID testing centre is coming to Frome. A Mobile Testing Unit is being set up at North Parade car park in Frome today (27 October). Frome has seen one of the highest instances of new infections in Somerset over the past month.
The idea is to try and make COVID testing more accessible. tests are only available for those with coronavirus symptoms:
- a high temperature,
- a new continuous cough,
- or a loss or change to sense of smell or taste.
Anyone wishing to get tested must book a test in advance. The exact details of when the centre will be open are frustratingly vague. We are told only that “The days of operation may vary week to week and information on availability of this and any other Mobile Testing Units in and around Somerset will be given when you book a test.”
