People with symptoms of Covid-19 can now be tested quickly and easily for the virus at a Mobile Testing Unit that visits different locations at different times.
The symptoms of Covid-19 are:
- New, continuous cough
- High temperature
- Loss of taste
- Loss of smell
Providing there is local availability, you can book in for a test at a mobile testing site by calling 119 or via the online government portal.
The locations of the Mobile Testing Unit can be found on the Nottingham NHS website here.
There is also a fixed testing drive-through site at the Motorpoint Arena car park behind the BBC building in Nottingham.
You must book in for a test prior to attending a MTU. Locations are drive-through only so you either need to drive or be driven to a site.
The test involves taking a swab of the nose and the back of the throat, which can be done by yourself or by a tester.
You will receive your test result via text or email within 72 hours. If your test is positive, you must self-isolate immediately. For more information on receiving your result, visit the NHS website.
