People who develop symptoms of Covid-19 are being reminded they must immediately self isolate and book a test.

Wolverhampton has Covid-19 test centres located around the city, with hundreds of slots available every day. 

Symptoms of Covid-19 include a fever, a new continuous cough or a change to the sense of taste or smell. To book a test, please visit GOV.UK or call 119.

Test sites include a drive through centre at Aldersley Leisure Village and walk through centres at Faulkland Street, Showell Road, Whitmore Reans Library and Blakenhall Community Resource Centre in Wolverhampton and at Mountford Lane car park in Bilston. The sites are open from 8am to 8pm daily, though the drive through will move to winter opening hours of 9am to 3pm from Monday (7 December).

All sites are accessible via appointment only except for Faulkland Street which also has up to 50 tests per day available on a first come, first served basis for those without an appointment. 

Councillor Jasbir Jaspal, the City of Wolverhampton Council's Cabinet Member for Public Health and Wellbeing, said: "We have worked incredibly hard to make Covid-19 testing available to anyone who needs it in Wolverhampton. Our test centres are conveniently located right across the city and the message is clear, if you have symptoms, you simply must get tested.”

People are reminded that they should wear a face covering when attending walk through centres, only removing these while the test is taking place. People should continue to self isolate pending the result of their test.

Latest data shows there were 251.37 cases of Covid-19 per 100,000 people in Wolverhampton over the 7 days to 30 November. That means 661 people in the city tested positive for the virus in that 7 day period – though the true number of new cases will likely be considerably higher.

The latest information and guidance around coronavirus is available at GOV.UK and on the council’s own coronavirus pages. For full details of the Tier 3 measures which are currently in place in Wolverhampton, please visit Covid Alert or GOV.UK
