A new mobile testing unit has opened in the car park to the rear of the Clements Hall Leisure Centre in Hawkwell.
The unit will be providing PCR tests for those who are showing symptoms or have been asked to take a test.
The site is appointment only and appointments can be booked online at https://www.gov.uk/get-coronavirus-test
The leader of Rochford District Council, Cllr Simon Wootton said: “The addition of a another site at the Clements Hall Leisure Centre extends the options for PCR testing in the district and strengthens our ability to ensure our residents can be tested locally.
“Testing is vital in managing the spread of the virus and this facility will play a major role in helping to keep the district safe.”
The mobile testing unit is open every day except for Saturday.
