New Walk-In Covid-19 Test Site Announced
A walk-in community test site for people who do not show symptoms of Covid-19 will now operate every Sunday from a parking lot in Carnoustie.
The mobile test van will be at its new location at Lycée Carnoustie from Sunday May 16.
The new Sunday walk-in facility joins a series of other mobile test sites now available in Tayside, Angus, Perth and Kinross.
Test sites operate without an appointment, however, to speed up the process reservations can be made in advance by pre-registering details by calling 119.
