A new COVID-19 testing centre for people without symptoms is set to open in the heart of Chester city centre.

Chester Cathedral will be home to Cheshire West and Chester Council's third asymptomatic testing centre in the borough.

The centres offer twice weekly testing for people who cannot work from home or people who care for family and friends, as well as people who share a household or bubble with a school pupil or someone who works at a school.

One in three people with COVID-19 do not have any symptoms so asymptomatic tests help to identify positive cases and prevent people from spreading the virus unknowingly.

Other COVID-19 testing centres for people without symptoms are located at Stanney Oaks Leisure Centre, in Ellesmere Port, and Winsford Lifestyle Centre.

These two centres have provided more than 25,000 tests since the first site opened in December.

They are open between 9am and 7pm from Monday to Friday and from 9am to 1pm on Saturdays. No appointment is necessary.

Further details about the opening and operational times of the Chester Cathedral asymptomatic testing centre will be announced in due course.

Anyone who develops COVID-19 symptoms, which include a new continuous cough, a high temperature or a loss or change in your sense of taste or smell, should self-isolate immediately and call: 119 or CLICK HERE to book a test.

To reduce the spread of COVID-19 everyone is reminded to stay at home as much as possible, wash their hands or use hand sanitiser regularly, cover their face in enclosed spaces and maintain social distancing by keeping two metres away from people they do not live with.
