Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Community testing

Mobile community testing is being offered across Aberdeenshire from 5th July 2021. Community testing is the name for the testing programme for people who do not have COVID-19 symptoms.

It is estimated that 1 in 3 people with coronavirus do not display symptoms and therefore some people will be spreading the virus without realising it. Testing without symptoms is entirely voluntarily. By visiting a Mobile Community Testing Centre and taking the test, residents will be able to better protect their family, colleagues and the wider community by ensuring they are not spreading the virus to others without knowing it.

You can also collect packs of personal test kits from the Mobile Community Testing Centres.

You do not need an appointment to take a test at a Mobile Community Testing Centre.

You should not attend any of these centres if you:

  • Have COVID-19 symptoms
  • Have had a positive test in the last 90 days
  • Are currently self-isolating as a close contact or are shielding

If you do have symptoms, isolate immediately and book a test via the gov.uk website or call 0300 303 2713.

We use these testing facilities to support NHS colleagues to manage localised outbreaks in the coming weeks, and so locations and times may change at short notice. It is important that our system can be flexible to help support a Grampian-wide Covid response.
