Testing centre for Bridgwater
Written by admin on October 5, 2020
Bridgwater Town Council has been working with Public Health England and Somerset County Council to ensure that the town urgently gets a centrally based Covid testing centre. Bridgwater Town Hall has been agreed as the location and arrangements are being made to free up on-street car parking so that people with symptoms aren’t forced to walk from the towns car parks to get their tests.
Town Clerk David Mears , who has been leading on the negotiations, explained “There are 3 types of testing centre -‘Regional’ as we see in Taunton and Weston, ‘Mobile’-which just pop up for 6 weeks in various car parks and ‘Local’ which is what we’ll be getting here. These are internal, appointment based and the project should last about 6 months,”
