A drop-in community testing site for people who do not have symptoms of Covid-19 will now operate every Sunday from a Carnoustie car park.
The mobile testing van will be at its new location at Carnoustie High School from Sunday, May 16.
The new Sunday drop-in facility is in addition to a raft of other mobile testing locations now available across Tayside, Angus, Perth and Kinross.
The testing sites operate on a walk-in basis with no appointment necessary, however, to make the process quicker bookings can be made in advance by pre-registering details by phoning 119.
