DETAILS: Symptom-free testing sites open across Kent

Thursday 7th January 2021

TESTING for people who do not have COVID-19 symptoms is being rolled out across Kent.

The testing will find people who may be unknowingly spreading the virus. The sites are part of a rolling programme to help reduce the rates of transmission in Kent.

All symptom free testing sites will be open daily from 9am to 7pm from today.

KCC Leader Roger Gough said: "The opening of 14 sites has been a huge partnership effort between Kent County Council, central Government and the 12 district and borough councils. Another 10 sites are being planned for rollout in the coming weeks so we continue to do everything we can to help Kent out of this situation.”
