Anyone who has symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19) can get a free test to check if they have the virus. Some people without symptoms can have the test too. This test is called the "antigen" or "swab" test.
There is a mobile testing unit in Salford at various locations throughout July.
Anyone with symptoms can book a test by visiting www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/testing-and-tracing/get-an-antigen-test-to-check-if-you-have-coronavirus/.
Priority will be given to essential key workers. Key workers can log on to the self-referral portal www.gov.uk/apply-coronavirus-test-essential-workers.
Those unable to access the internet can call 119. Please note that only those with a pre-booked appointment will be seen.
