Guernsey's east arm testing facility will hold regular PCR testing 'drop in' sessions from today (22 November).

It will be available to anyone who has tested positive for Covid-19 on a Lateral Flow Test (LFT) and is over the aged of 12.

You do not need to book in advance and it is open between 9am and 10:45am on weekdays.

You must bring your positive LFT and if possible a smart device such as phone or tablet.

These sessions will run for two weeks until 3 December but could be extended if there's still high demand and pressure on the hospital testing facility.

Patients will receive the result in normal way, via text if negative or a phone call from public health if it is positive.

You must come in a vehicle to the facility, not by bike or or foot.
