Essex County Council has a opened (19 January) a fast testing centre for those who DO NOT have symptoms of Covid-19.

The centre is at West Maldon Community Centre, Sunbury Way, Maldon, CM9 6YH and is for Maldon District residents.

Tests, which give results in around 30 minutes, are by appointment only and bookings should be made online via the Essex County Council website(link is external).

Booking online should be the quickest and most effective option for residents seeking a Lateral Flow Test, but if you're not able to book using the online form you can call 0333 772 6144 to arrange an appointment. Lines are open from 8am to 8pm, every day including weekends. You can also email: booking.confirmation@nhs.net (link sends e-mail) and a member of staff will contact you to arrange an appointment.

Tests give results in around 30 minutes. If you test positive, you must self-isolate and request a PCR test as if you have symptoms.

Anyone WITH symptoms should book a test via the NHS Test and Trace App, or here.
