Local councillors, party officials and our MP have urged local residents living, working or studying in either CT1 of CT2 7 to get a PCR Covid test as part of KCC’s plans to control the emerging Indian Variant in Canterbury.
The new surge testing will take place between the 1st and 15th of June at five new mobile testing centres. The mobile test units will be open from 9am to 7pm, Monday to Sunday and are in the following locations:
- Dover Road Park and Ride (CT1 3EL view on Google maps)
- Sturry Road Park and Ride (CT1 1AD view on Google maps)
- University of Kent, Darwin College Car Park (CT2 7NY view on Google maps)
- University of Kent, Keynes College Car Park (CT2 7NP view on Google maps)
- Wincheap Park and Ride (CT1 3TQ view on Google maps).
You don’t need to book an appointment, just visit one of the mobile testing units at a time that suits you.If you’re unable to get to one of our mobile testing units, please order a PCR test online.
Speaking after recording a video of local elected officials having the test Canterbury MP Rosie Duffield said “its more important than ever that we work together to keep Canterbury safe”.
