Coronavirus test centre open on Jubilee campus


October 22nd, 2020

A new coronavirus test centre has opened on Jubilee campus.

Tests can be booked by either ringing 119 or booking via the NHS website. Anyone with symptoms of coronavirus, however mild, can get a free swab test that takes less than a minute.

The main symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) are:

  • a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
  • a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
  • a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you’ve noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal

The new site is hosted by the University of Nottingham, in the grounds of the dual-use car park at the rear of Southwell Hall. It is designed for people to access either on foot or bike, not by car and therefore parking will not be available. Access to the centre is via Triumph Road only. You can see the new testing centre marked as Public Health England Testing Station on this map.

Those being tested will be required to follow public health measures, including social distancing, not travelling by taxi or public transport, practising good personal hygiene and wearing a face covering throughout (including travelling to and from the testing centre).

Testing at the new site is now live and the facility is open to staff, students as well as members of the local community.

I think this should say “dual-use” car park, “duel” has a very different meaning and is no longer legal-)
