COVID-19 testing for people without symptoms
A number centres have opened in Forth Valley to provide Covid-19 tests for people who don’t have any symptoms of Covid-19 (also known as asymptomatic testing). This includes a testing centre at Polmont Sports Centre which is open Wednesday to Sunday, 10am – 8pm and a mobile testing centre is visiting Alva (Cochrane Hall), Sauchie Hall, Cowie Community Centre and Callander (McLaren Hall) on a rotational basis.
No appointments are necessary as the centres operate on a ‘drop-in’ basis. The test itself takes around 30 minutes and you can either wait or get your results sent on to you by phone or text. You should not attend any of these testing centres if you are displaying any symptoms (even mild) of COVID-19 and instead arrange a test via NHS Inform as outlined above. More information on Covid-19 testing for people without symptoms, including details of local opening times and locations, can be found via the links below.
