New coronavirus mobile community testing site in Rosyth

Rosyth now has a coronavirus mobile community testing site.

It opened today and is based at Parkgate Community Centre car park.

The site will provide testing for members of the public without Covid-19 symptoms.

Members of the public can access community testing without needing to book an appointment and there is confidential support available for anyone who tests positive for the virus and needs to self-isolate.

The site is initially open 9am to 3.30pm Monday to Friday.

Dona Milne, NHS Fife Director of Public Health, said: "Community testing sites are available across Fife, providing quick and easy access to testing.

"We know that around 1 in 3 people with Covid-19 don’t have symptoms but are still infectious and able to pass the virus on to loved ones, friends and the wider community.

"By getting tested you can find out if you have the virus and if you are positive take immediate action to stop the spread of the virus to others by self-isolating.

"We’re using the most up-to-date public health information to determine where testing sites are located in Fife.

"By getting tested when you don’t have symptoms you can play your part in the fight against Covid-19 and help to keep everyone safe."
