A new Covid-19 Lateral Flow Testing Site has recently opened at The Miners Welfare Hall in Cinderford.

The test centre is available to all Gloucestershire / Forest of Dean residents for regular asymptomatic testing. We are keen to raise awareness of our presence in the area and have been sending the following email to local businesses. We would be grateful if you could help us share this information, we also have a link for community posters below.

Get yourself and your staff tested today! Your local community testing centre is located at the Miners Welfare Hall, Parragate Road, Cinderford, GL14 2JN.

Covid hasn’t gone away and to help keep life moving, and keep our businesses open, we all must play our part in keeping cases down. Regular testing, alongside following the rules of Hands, Face, Space remain crucial steps to keep reducing the rate of infection and protect one another.

The Miners Welfare Hall community testing centre offers free and easy, twice-weekly, testing using Lateral Flow Devices (LFDs) to detect  COVID-19 in people with no symptoms,  but who may still be spreading the virus. LFD testing is mainly for those people who have to leave the house for essential reasons, including for work or to care for others – making you and your staff eligible.

Whilst a negative LFD test does not 100 per cent mean that a person doesn’t have the virus, it tends to catch people when they are most infectious, helping prevent the spread to others.

This site  is one of four in the county,  located at: The Friendship Café in Gloucester, the Royal Agricultural College in Cirencester, The Miners Welfare hall in Cinderford  and The Link in Tewkesbury

You will need to book an appointment to get tested, which you can do via our website: www.gloucestershire.gov.uk/community-testing

Please encourage your staff to take up this offer to protect themselves, others around them and your business. To help you do this we have attached a poster that can be displayed at your site.

People who display Covid symptoms should still isolate immediately and book a test at Hempsted Meadows PCR testing facility, the new walk in site in Cheltenham or at one of the county’s mobile units, using the national testing portal.
