Coronavirus testing centre opens in Matlock

A coronavirus testing centre in Derbyshire Dales opened at 9am on Friday 26 February in the Members’ Room at County Hall, Smedley Street, Matlock. It will be open from 9am to 7pm, seven days a week.

One in 3 people who have the virus don’t have symptoms and could be infecting other people without realising - that's why people who are still going out to work and mixing with colleagues or the public are encouraged to get tested regularly to stop the spread of COVID-19.

More than 33,000 tests have been carried out at Derbyshire’s community testing centres up to February 12, with 419 (1.3%) of people testing positive.

There’s no need to book an appointment at a community testing centre – just call in. You can check waiting times before you visit on the County Council's website

People with symptoms are asked not to visit the community testing centres. Anyone with symptoms – a new, continuous cough, a high temperature or change to taste or smell – should ring NHS 119 or book a test online
