New testing centre opening in Colwyn Bay

A new testing station will open tomorrow (3 November) in Colwyn Bay to make it easier for people in the area to get an appointment for a COVID-19 test closer to home. 

This service for individuals who believe they have COVID-19 symptoms, and you should only attend if you have one or more of the following symptoms:
•    a high temperature 
•    a new, continuous cough 
•    a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste 

The drive-through facility has been set up at Eirias Park and will be in operation for the next two to three weeks. The site is accessed via the entrance to Eirias Events Centre, off Abergele Road, Opposite Colwyn Bay fire station.

This is not a walk-in service and people will need to make an appointment to have a test. 

Details about how to apply for a test can be found on the Welsh Government website here.

Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board has worked in partnership with Conwy County Council, Public Health Wales and the UK Government Department of Health and Social Care to set this testing station up.
