Asymptomatic testing centre for all East Lothian residents

Asymptomatic testing centre for all East Lothian residents

A new Covid-19 testing centre aimed at identifying positive cases among people showing no symptoms opens in Musselburgh on Friday, 30 April. The facility is located located at the previous Stoneyhill Community Centre.

Getting tested is quick and easy. No appointment is required. Its launch is another significant step in helping build on progress to suppress the spread of COVID-19 across our communities and move to an even less restrictive way of life.

COVID-19 does still present a significant risk. Getting tested – even if you’ve received your vaccination – means you can find out if you are positive, and take immediate action to stop the spread of the virus to others, by self-isolating.

The facility open to everyone from East Lothian as long as you don’t have symptoms – a fever, cough, or loss or change of smell. If you do have symptoms, you need to book a test elsewhere.

Opening hours are 11am-6pm (Tuesday to Saturday). Address: 5 Stoneyhill Farm Road, Musselburgh, East Lothian, EH21 6RN
