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.

Grantown covid cases
The latest addition to the mobile testing site list is Carnoustie High School.

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.
