messageBelair Park - Covid Testing today
Posted by beansprout June 15, 11:40AM

Was passing earlier today and saw this up and running for those who are looking locally.

Admin, sorry if not allowed but thought might be useful for people.

No idea if they will be around for rest of week.

I drove past around two weeks ago and noticed the Belair car park was being used as a Covid testing place.

Does centre test for active disease, presence of virus or presence of antibodies?

Wasn't antibodies so either or both: active disease/presence of virus. Results back in a day.

You'd be crazy to get tested there tbh. Surely you'd have a high chance of being infected if you weren't already?

My wife and I have developed mild sore throats so I got tested at the Dome today - a drive-through.

All very efficient and painless and about 20 cars at the huge Dome carpark with any number of his-vis staff waving you through. You do the test yourself whilst being watched by staff with your windows closed. They only open an inch to give you the pack and an inch at the end to pop it in a box. Slight gag and mild irritation to the nose but nothing untoward.

I did consider a nearer walk-in but as you said my instinct is that it would potentially be riskier (though probably isn't).

It's an outdoor venue and the guys and gals you deal with stay away from your car, only passing the kit and guidance through you car window which remains marginally ajar as instructed (not sure if you can turn up without a vehicle). They did a good job I reckon and it looked a lot less risky than pubs, loos, service stations, shops, gyms etc. simply because of the distancing measures in place. 18 hours for a result. Good job.

They're not at Belair any more - does anyone know where the nearest testing is now? Billingsgate is the nearest we can find thats up and running at the moment. Thanks!
