A NEW mobile testing unit will open on Wrexham Industrial Estate from next week.

The new facility has been put in place to make it easier for people working in the area to get a COVID-19 test.

A spokesman for Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board said: “The move is part of ongoing work to help keep virus cases low in Wrexham. The easy-access testing facility will be offering rapid lateral flow tests at the Redwither Business Park, every Monday starting from June 7.

“The facility will be open between 8am and 4pm on June 7, and between 12pm and 8pm on June 14. After that, the opening times will be reviewed.

“Staff working on the industrial estate who don’t have symptoms are being encouraged to get tested at the unit (anyone who does have symptoms should self-isolate immediately and book a PCR test).”
