A new local testing site for those with COVID-19 symptoms will be constructed in Churchill Way Long Stay Car Park in Basingstoke to replace The Anvil testing site, which will close on Tuesday 6 April.
The location was confirmed after a multi-agency site visit this week. The construction of the modular unit, which will sit in its own compound with a separate entrance and exit to allow a one way flow, is scheduled to take place at the end of next week . It is due to be ready to start testing next weekend.
Car parking in Churchill Way long stay will still be available but at a reduced capacity.
A mobile testing unit will be sited at The Malls car park from Wednesday 7 April to Friday 9 April inclusive to provide symptomatic testing while the new local testing site is prepared.
