A mobile Covid-19 testing unit will be set up at Aldersley Leisure Village.
Wolverhampton has played host to the mobile facility on a number of occasions in recent months and it will now be located within the grounds of the council-run leisure complex from Monday, July 13.
It will have an integrated one-way system to allow people to attend either for walk-in or drive-through testing.
Symptoms of Covid-19 include a high temperature, a loss or change to the sense of smell or taste and a new, continuous cough.
The test – which involves taking a swab of the inside of the nose and the back of the throat – is most effective within one to three days of symptoms developing and should be carried out in the first five days.
All tests must be booked in advance via www.nhs.uk/ask-for-a-coronavirus-test.
Anyone in Wolverhampton who tests positive for Covid-19 will be contacted by NHS Test and Trace and will need to share information about people that have been close contacts recently.
Councillor Jasbir Jaspal, Wolverhampton’s cabinet member for public health and wellbeing, said: “Testing is one of the most important interventions that will enable the effective management of coronavirus, and so we are pleased to be able to make Alderlsey Leisure Village available to host this mobile test centre.
“Aldersley has already played a substantial part in the city’s fight against coronavirus, acting as a food distribution centre which has delivered more than 1.1 million meals to residents across the city. Now it has an equally important role to play in helping us prevent the spread of the virus and avoiding a local lockdown.
“The message is clear, if you or a member of your household is showing symptoms of Covid-19, please book a test. This will confirm whether you or someone you live with has the infection and enable you to get the advice you need to manage your situation. If you don’t have symptoms, you cannot have the test.”
