Here’s the latest Aberdeenshire mobile community testing timetable

Mobile community testing is being offered across Aberdeenshire for people who do not have Covid-19 symptoms.

Friday, 13th August 2021, 4:39 pm
Community testing for people without Covid-19 symptoms is being offered at locations throughout Aberdeenshire.

It is estimated that one in three people with coronavirus do not display symptoms and therefore some people will be spreading the virus without realising it.

Testing without symptoms is entirely voluntarily. By visiting a Mobile Community Testing Centre and taking the test, residents will be able to better protect their family, colleagues and the wider community by ensuring they are not spreading the virus to others without knowing it.

You can also collect packs of personal test kits from the Mobile Community Testing Centres.

You do not need an appointment to take a test at a Mobile Community Testing Centre.

The council is using these testing facilities to support NHS colleagues to manage localised outbreaks in the coming weeks, and so locations and times may change at short notice. It is important that the system can be flexible to help support a Grampian-wide Covid response.

Here’s the timetable for the coming week. Please check the council’s community testing page for any changes.
