Hertfordshire residents encouraged not to delay getting a coronavirus test

Jun 26, 2020


Hertfordshire residents with symptoms of coronavirus COVID-19 are being encouraged not to delay getting a test for the virus. 

Booking a test is quick and easy. The booking site www.gov.uk/coronavirus will show the testing centres available for the next day and you should have your test done as soon as possible after your symptoms first develop.  Coronavirus symptoms are a high temperature; a new, continuous cough; or a loss or change to someone’s sense of smell or taste. 

Drive through testing sites are now operational for everyone living or working in Hertfordshire – with testing centres on various days in the week in Hertford, Watford, Hemel Hempstead, Stevenage and  Welwyn Garden City.  People who don’t have access to a car or are too ill to drive can order a test kit to be posted to their home.

For anyone who needs additional help to book a test, or who doesn’t have access to the internet, a telephone call centre is available – phone 119 between 7am and 11pm or 18001 0300 303 2713 if you have hearing or speech difficulties.
