THE health board has closed one test centre and opened a new one in North Wales.

A Betsi Cadwalladr University Health Board spokesman said: “From 4:30pm on Tuesday, May 4, the testing unit in Llangollen will close.

“A new walk-in and drive-through testing centre will open in Corwen on Thursday, May 6, to make it easier for people in the area to get tested for COVID-19 closer to home.

“The testing centre is located at Green Lane Car Park, Corwen, opening from 9.30am until 4.30pm, seven days a week.”

An appointment for a test can be made by going online to or by phoning 119.
