The following message has been received from Suffolk County Council.

Framlingham Sports & Fitness Centre (car park), operated by Framlingham College has been approved as a suitable location for a Covid-19 Mobile Testing Unit and that testing will begin at the site from Thursday 2nd July. The units offer drive-through testing and are operated by small military teams on behalf of DHSC.

It is anticipated that a unit will be scheduled to operate in Framlingham twice weekly. This will normally be on Thursdays and Sundays between 10:00 and 15:00 hours on each day, although the final schedule is only confirmed to us 48 hours in advance.

We do not currently know over what period this will be in operation, however the College has advised that the site should be available until at least September should we need to continue to use it.

Further information can be obtained on this Suffolk County Council web link : https://www.suffolk.gov.uk/coronavirus-covid-19/covid-19-testing-in-suffolk/ which is regularly updated and has all the latest information on who can get tested, where the test units will be located and how to book at test.
