Changes to Wimborne & Ferndown COVID-19 Testing Sites

Due to operational issues, the mobile testing unit at Penny’s Lodge Car Park is no longer in use.

A new mobile testing site will be visiting Queen Elizabeth School in Wimborne, twice per week, from Monday 26 July 2021.

Mobile testing units are for residents who have COVID-19 symptoms to book a PCR test. These sites are also for those residents who have tested positive on LFD tests or who are close contacts of a confirmed COVD-19 case.

A list of sites where residents can get PCR tests can be found: https://www.publichealthdorset.org.uk/your-health/protecting-your-health/what-to-do-if-you-have-symptoms.aspx

If residents have no symptoms of COVID-19 they should be encouraged to do regular LFD tests. These tests can be ordered online or collected from local pharmacies.
