Covid-19 test kits are now being offered at Nuneaton’s biggest leisure centre.
Reception staff at the Pingles Leisure Centre in Nuneaton are currently handing out Covid-19 lateral flow tests during usual opening hours.
This new service is expected to continue to the end of June.
The kits are for those who have no Covid-19 symptoms and want to check that they are not unwittingly carrying the virus.
They are also available at the official mass Covid-19 test centre at the United Reformed Church in the town centre.
