Walk-in (no appointment) COVID-19 testing in Ballyhaunis on Thursday and Friday

Additional ‘pop-up’ Covid-19 testing will be available in Ballyhaunis on Thursday June 24 and Friday June 25.

The pop-up test-site will offer free testing without appointment from 11am to 7pm at The Friary, Abbey Street, Ballyhaunis, F35 PF60.

The testing is available to those living in the area who: (1 ) Are aged 16 and over, (2 ) Who do not have Covid-19 symptoms and (3 ) Have not tested positive for Covid-19 in the last nine months.

Anyone presenting for the walk-in testing must: (1 ) Bring a photo ID and (2 ) Provide a mobile phone number to get their test results.

This is part of a planned roll-out of walk-in testing in several parts of the region in recent weeks, and has been planned by the HSE Public Health West, the National Ambulance Service and is supported by Community Healthcare West.

It’s now also possible to make your own appointment for testing at the existing Covid-19 test site in MacHale Park, Castlebar. You can book at: https://covid19test.healthservice.ie/hse-self-referral/

HSE Director of Public Health in the West, Dr Breda Smyth added: "Making Covid-19 testing as accessible as possible is an important part of the HSE’s efforts to limit the spread of the virus. By coming forward for testing, even when you don’t have symptoms, you are helping keep Covid-19 under control. I encourage anyone in the area to take up this opportunity for testing as it will help us to contain any cases of Covid-19”.

Social distancing measures will apply as people attend for testing. If the waiting times are too long for you, you are welcome to return at another time or day.
