New asymptomatic test facilities will be live across Greater Glasgow and Clyde by the 1st of March 2021.
People with COVID-19, may not have symptoms of the virus or they can so mild or unusual that they are not recognised as COVID-19. Without knowing it, they could be spreading it to their loved ones, work colleagues or the wider community. To help stop the spread and for your own peace of mind, NHSGGC has been working with the Scottish Government and local Councils in the region to set-up static test sites in conjunction to all the walk in, drive through and Mobile Testing Units (MTUs) for testing of people with symptoms throughout the region.
The asymptomatic test sites are for members of the public who are not experiencing symptoms of COVID-19. If you feel you may have symptoms, such as loss of taste and smell, a high temperature, or new and continuous cough, you should arrange a test via NHS Inform.
There will be seven asymptomatic test centre sites across the region and these will be open to members of the public who live locally.
Auchinairn Early Learning and Community Centre, Beech Road, Auchinairn
Cowan 7s Pavilion, Aurs Rd, Barrhead, G78 2RN
Glasgow Central Mosque, 1 Mosque Avenue, Glasgow
Govanhill Neighbourhood Centre, 6 Daisy St, Glasgow
Gamble Halls, 44 Shore Street, Gourock
There will be a mobile test unit for residents of Gallowhill in Paisley. This will be operational from the 25th of February for seven days.
Clydebank East Community Centre, Fleming Avenue, Clydebank
Levenvalley Enterprise Centre, Castlehill Road, Dumbarton
Each of the centres works on a drop-in basis, with no appointment necessary. We would like to encourage everyone living or working in the area near one of these testing sites to go along and have a rapid test (you will get a result in 30 minutes or less).
The centres will also advise of support available if you have a positive test so that you can isolate and not spread the infection.
We are pleased to welcome the support of our colleagues in the Armed Forces, who will be setting up the facilities.
