Extra mobile testing centre opens at Nantymoel

Cwm Taf Morgannwg University Health Board has confirmed that an additional mobile testing facility will open at Nantymoel on Friday 30 July.

Based at Nantymoel Primary School in Gwendoline Street (CF32 7PL), the centre will be available between 9am-4pm every day for walk-in appointments with no prior booking required.

This is in addition to the testing unit which remains available at the site of the former Revlon (Cosi) factory at Oakwood Drive in Maesteg (CF34 9TS) where it is operating as a drive-through facility between 9am-6pm.

A walk-through testing centre is also available at the Bowls Hall car park in Angel Street, Bridgend (CF31 4AH) between 2pm-8pm for people.

To use either of the sites, you must book an appointment by visiting the Welsh Government website or by calling 119. If you have hearing or speech difficulties, you can call 18001119 to arrange an appointment.

You can also collect lateral flow tests for home use from the Bowls Hall car park facility between 8am-1pm, seven days a week. Many pharmacies are also offering free lateral flow self-test kits.

The Leader, Cllr Huw David said: “The coronavirus pandemic is not over, and we are still seeing cases of people who are testing positive for Covid-19. The new centre is being deployed to support efforts to combat the virus, and limit its impact on local people.

“Anyone who feels generally unwell or has symptoms such as a high temperature, a new continuous cough, or a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste should arrange a test immediately and self-isolate at home.

“Mobile testing forms an important part of our efforts to combat Covid-19 and these arrangements are being constantly reviewed, so look out for further announcements soon.”
