Dr. Anne Sheahan, Acting Director of HSE South, has previously encouraged people to avail of the pop-up testing centres, saying: “By coming forward for testing when you don’t have symptoms, you are helping the entire community to keep Covid-19 under control.
“Walk-in testing like this is one of the ways we can make sure that continues. 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 in the area.”
