A new coro­n­avirus test­ing site has opened up at the Univer­sity of Bath.

The site has opened in Car­pen­ter House in Broad Quay for those who have booked a Covid19 test.

MP Wera Hob­house said: “The new test­ing site is an ex­am­ple of the proac­tive and ef­fec­tive col­lab­o­ra­tion we have seen through­out the pan­demic in Bath.

“I am proud of ev­ery­one in our city, from res­i­dents and vol­un­teers to our key in­sti­tu­tions in­clud­ing Bath and North East Som­er­set Coun­cil, the RUH, uni­ver­si­ties and others who have joined forces to keep res­i­dents safe.”

The lo­cal test­ing site has its own en­trance and exit to keep peo­ple safe, and res­i­dents and busi­nesses were no­ti­fied in ad­vance.

Bath and North East Som­er­set Coun­cil says that the site will “play a role in driv­ing down the spread of coro­n­avirus in Bath and North East Som­er­set”.

The Bath MP said: “This is very good news for ev­ery­one in our city, and I com­mend Bath and North East Som­er­set Coun­cil for their role in mak­ing this hap­pen.

“I am grate­ful to the Univer­sity of Bath for pro­vid­ing space for the site in Car­pen­ter House, their build­ing in Broad Quay in the city cen­tre, which is eas­ily ac­ces­si­ble with­out a car.”
