Cheshunt Football Club will be the first of the roving rapid testing sites in the county for the new phase of testing following those undertaken in Broxbourne Borough over Christmas.
This Wednesday, 20th January, Cheshunt FC will open its doors to the roving rapid testing bus.
NTL Biologica operate the facility on behalf of the County Council from a converted bus.
The club has been closed during the latest lockdown and has been keen to help in the fight against Covid 19. Talks are ongoing with Hertfordshire County Council about establishing a permanent testing facility from the club’s facilities.
Covid-19 has had a massive impact on our community and we want to help in any way we can.
Cheshunt Chairman Dean Williamson added: “We’re pleased to be able to offer this testing from our facilities. Covid-19 has had a massive impact on our community and we want to help in any way we can. We reached out to the County Council as our facilities are currently dormant and we’re in an accessible location for local residents.”
The rapid testing bus is an appointment booking system only operating from 9.30am to 4.30pm.
